Effinature certification was designed to reverse trend of biodiversity deterioration in the construction sector and raise awareness among town planners about this major issue.

  • Determine the value of the site and the ecological potential of the project.

  • Preserve the existing natural heritage and existing landscape.

  • Control the impacts of the project on biodiversity and well-being of residents.

  • Unlock the ecological potential of the project through a responsible and sustainable management of biodiversity.

  • Train those involved in the project and raise awareness.

Effinature certification was conceived to be part of the design, construction and operation of the project. Effinature certification has over 100 biodiversity control points determined by a concerted scientific approach : organization, design, realization and operation.
