In the previous episode of Urban Chronicles™, we met two founding members of IBPC (International Biodiversity and Real Estate Council), Luc Monteil and Pierre Darmet, respectively President and Secretary of IBPC.
Having discussed the current situation of global biodiversity as well as the different roles of IBPC on urban biodiversity issues last week, Pierre Darmet and Luc Monteil now elaborate on how to accelerate the awareness of real estate stakeholders in favour of biodiversity and what means are available to include biodiversity in their projects.
For this edition of the 8th season, two founding members of the International Biodivercity Property Council (IBPC), Luc Monteil, President of IBPC, and Pierre Darmet, Secretary of IBPC, give us their view on what is the current state of global biodiversity, and how does IBPC work to preserve biodiversity. The IBPC contributes to the development of professionals on the theme of biodiversity with the aim of moving from a pioneering movement to a general mobilization of all stakeholders.
During this cross-examination, we discussed the current situation of biodiversity in the world, where one million plans and animal species are threatened with extinction, and IBPC’s roles in urban biodiversity.

The concept of circular economy is becoming increasingly important in the construction sector. Opposing the classic linear economy model (extract, produce, consume, throw away), this concept is based on seven main pillars: ecodesign (minimizing environmental impacts from the development of a product), industrial ecology (organization that optimizes the use of resources), economy of functionality, reuse, repair, reuse and finally recycling. Real estate, from design to construction, and operation to deconstruction, is gradually adopting these new sustainable schemes to put the circular economy at the heart of its model.

In order to preserve their heritage and become sustainable, several cities have implemented mitigation actions and strategies to become resilient to climate risk.
