Bridging Business and Biodiversity: Why a Thriving Natural World is Essential for Business Success

Biodiversity is the backbone of our economy and the key to a sustainable future for businesses. However, many businesses remain unaware of their dependence on and impact on biodiversity. From natural resources and services to climate regulation and economic stability, biodiversity is essential for all life on Earth. Through the EU Business and Biodiversity Platform, businesses can learn about the importance of biodiversity and develop strategies to move towards a nature-positive future, benefiting both their operations and the planet.

Through the EU B&B Platform, business and finance have a unique opportunity to redesign their relationship with nature and identify actions to move towards a nature-positive world.

Is your business committed to nature?

Show your support by signing the Business Charter.

The European Business Nature Commitment recognises the need to raise ambition for biodiversity and show their willingness to transform their businesses to help reverse nature loss and contribute to a nature-positive, net zero and equitable economy. 

The Commitment sets out a range of business actions to halt and reverse nature loss by 2030, in line with the goals set out by the Global Biodiversity Framework, and in line with the four high-level business actions for nature: ASSESS-COMMIT-TRANSFORM-DISCLOSE. These actions have been developed in collaboration with leading business organisations and build on existing action frameworks and guidance. Taking these high-level actions will help companies develop nature strategies turning commitments into action. 

The European Business Nature Commitment is open to all private organisations participating in the European Business & Nature Summit, from micro-businesses to large corporations and financial institutions, regardless of where they may be on their nature journey. Organisations can take key actions to signal their support for the nature agenda and to help drive the momentum for action.
