Natural England released a beta version of their new Environmental Benefits from Nature (EBN) tool (formerly referred to as the Eco-metric) in July 2021. It is now actively looking for volunteers to take part in its evaluation. Designed for voluntary decision-support, this innovative tool is the culmination of extensive development work and testing, and seeks to enable delivery of wider benefits to people and nature from habitat change. Visit our new Environmental Benefits from Nature page to find out more.
