The North Devon Biosphere Business Partner Eco Accreditation Scheme is now open for applications

The Biosphere Business Partner Scheme provides the opportunity for businesses to share that they are proud to be part of the world class area, by being part of a sustainable business network that looks after the very assets that attract 80% of the visitors, as well as each other.

Enjoy free advertising, networking & events, a badge to display, local newsletters and news features as well as great kudos for your business and engagement with the local environment.

All that is required is for you to make five commitments across three sustainability categories including local conservation, raising awareness and local development.

About our biosphere

North Devon Biosphere is one of just 714 worldwide reserves across 129 countries, 7 of which are in the UK. It stretches from the North-Western tip of Devon across to Lynton in the East and from Lundy down to the top of Dartmoor, with its core centred on Braunton Burrows – a sand dune system designated as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
