What are the benefits of being a biosphere?
- Economy and business:
The Biosphere will attract more investment to our region and help local business grow by creation of niche markets for our region’s products and services, facilities and practices.
- Agriculture, forestry and fisheries:
It provides a premium brand to increase the value of products and services through a sustainable ‘Produced on the Sunshine Coast’ brand. It also protects these industries as an important part of our economy.
- Development and construction:
Achieves planning principles for urban consolidation and sustainable design to deliver inclusive and vibrant communities.
Increases collaboration between schools, academia, business and government with focus on sustainability projects.
Raises the profile of the Sunshine Coast and increases the desirability of our region as a holiday destination.
What can businesses do?
Information will soon be released on how businesses can align themselves with the biosphere. Biosphere credentials will be a proud badge for businesses that will show customers and suppliers they are working sustainably in our environment.
