Dr Gemma Jerome is the Director of Building with Nature, the UK’s first benchmark for high-quality green infrastructure. She has been developing the benchmark with a team of industry and research specialists since 2015 and is now leading on establishing Building with Nature as the 'how to' quality standards for the design, delivery and long-term management and maintenance of nature-rich development.
