Botanical Gardens Sustainable Practices Survey

Conducted by BGCI and Phipps Conservatory

This is a collaborative project between BGCI, Phipps Conservatory and other botanic gardens internationally, to gather information on the sustainability practices of botanic gardens. It is divided into two main surveys.

This section focuses on organisational sustainability practices. This builds on a previous survey that was sent out to US gardens (by Phipps) and will support the Sustainability Challenge – a newly launched collaborative project. The data collected in this survey will help to inform a future technical review on sustainability within botanic gardens and this wider collaborative project.

We encourage all members to complete each survey. This survey should take roughly 20 minutes. The deadline for completing the survey is 31st December 2019.

If you have any questions please contact Helen Miller.

Survey 2 (Sustainability challenge survey) which collects data about how your organisation provides incentives/opportunities to bring about visitor change can be viewed here.
