Project description
The project aims at finding effective and efficient ways to utilize the No Net Loss (NNL) principle in environmental regulation in order to halt biodiversity loss. The research will focus on national and EU environmental legislation and non-state regulation related to corporate environmental responsibility. First the operationalization of NNL principle in existing regulation will be scrutinized and the NNL principle will be critically analyzed from the point of view of planetary boundaries framework. The final aim is to find out what are the possibilities and weaknesses of implementing the NNL priniciple on a larger scale and to make suggestions to change regulation accordingly.
