Planting schemes that look good and reduce tax

How Biophilic Design can save you money and improve staff wellbeing.

As a business owner, you know that providing a good environment for your employees and guests requires attention to detail and careful balance between long term gain and budgets. One area that helps is Biophilic Design.

We are experts in this area and work with corporate and hospitality businesses across the UK to help bring the benefits of connecting people with nature to built environments. Not only do plants enhance the appearance of spaces, they also improve the wellbeing and retention of employees. The added bonus is that planting projects are also tax deductible for businesses, so incorporating Biophilic Design into your buildings is a win-win.

So what exactly is Biophilic Design?

Biophilic Design is the incorporation of natural elements and features, such as plants, water, and natural light, into the built environment. This design approach has been shown to have numerous benefits for employees, including:

  • A positive impact on employees’ physical and mental health, productivity, and job satisfaction. This leads to a more engaged and motivated workforce (International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health).
  • Reduced stress and anxiety: Exposure to nature and natural elements can help to lower stress and anxiety levels. This improves employees’ mental health and wellbeing (Journal of Environmental Psychology).
  • Increased productivity: Biophilic Design has been shown to improve cognitive function and focus. This leads to increased productivity and better job performance (University of Exeter).
  • Improved physical health: It can improve indoor air quality and reduce the presence of harmful pollutants, leading to better respiratory health for employees (Journal of Public Health).
  • Higher job satisfaction: Providing a visually appealing and stimulating work environment. This leads to higher job satisfaction and employee retention (International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health).
