The Strategic Approach
A strategic approach is systematic and can be characterised by the presence of the three elements:
- A formal sustainability/environmental/biodiversity group that:
- Includes all involved and interested groups and individuals in the institution and local community;
- Is recognised within the institution’s management structure with institutional support for its decisions and a reporting responsibility to the institution; and
- Has a budget assigned to its activities.
- A biodiversity policy that:
- Commits the institution to promoting biodiversity;
- Is approved by senior managers;
- Is given wide publicity; and
- Is reviewed regularly.
- A biodiversity plan or strategy that:
- Is agreed and resourced by the institution; and
- Sets out clearly the way in which the institution intends to manage biodiversity on campus.
