BioRegional North America

BioRegional North America’s mission is to create thriving regional economies where we meet more of our needs from local, renewable and waste resources, enabling people to enjoy a high quality of life within their fair share of the earth’s resources, and leaving space for wildlife and wilderness. We call this One Planet Living. BioRegional’s Mandate is to work in long term partnerships with communities, companies, real estate developers and local authorities, delivering real world, practical projects that implement One Planet Living. We use these projects as exemplars in order to change policy and practice. ­

Our dynamic team at BioRegional North America specializes in fostering sustainable behavior change and collaborative consumption amongst occupants (residential and commercial) in new and existing buildings. We manage the ecoConcierge Pilot Program for the international BioRegional network. We have broad experience facilitating One Planet Action Plans and providing sustainability coaching and independent verification services.
