Biodiversity and sustainable resource management


The French Ligue de Protection des Oiseaux (LPO) or Bird Protection League, a well-known non-governmental organisation founded a one hundred ago, has developed a programme entitled "Refuge Balcon" that seeks to reintroduce biodiversity in towns and cities for the benefit of local communities.

Nacarat, a real estate promotion subsidiary of the Rabot Dutilleul group, works with the LPO to design residential buildings that comply with the principles of its «Refuge Balcon» programme.


  • Contribute to the development and promotion of urban biodiversity.
  • Contribute to raise awareness on local biodiversity among the inhabitants of towns and cities.
  • Develop cooperation between Nacarat and a NGO.


Nacarat’s strategy centers on building towns on a human scale to ensure the sustainable future of the planet. Urban biodiversity is a key part of Nacarat’s vision.

Nacarat works with environmentally conscious external service-providers, such as the LPO, to help it to design buildings to promote biodiversity under targeted real estate projects.

LPO’s team of environmental experts provide a list of biodiversity «refuge» requirements specific to given project sites, oversee the roll-out of the project phases and construction work and raise the awareness of the future occupants on local biodiversity issues.

Following the l’Arboretum prototype project in Lille, some one dozen projects are today being jointly rolled out across France.

In 2016, more than 10 operations are engaged.
