Why we need biodiversity in business?
Many businesses are not fully aware to what extent they depend and impact on biodiversity and ecosystems. Businesses rely on nature for resources, such as food or minerals, and the services it provides, such as pollination of crops, water filtration or climate sequestration and regulation. Biodiversity is essential for the processes that support all life on Earth, and forms the foundation of our economy, and healthy and prosperous societies.
Biodiversity decline poses the greatest systemic risks to our economy. To turn nature-related business risks into opportunities, business need to understand how they impact and depend on nature throughout the value chain.
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.
What we offer to businesses
No matter where you are on your biodiversity journey, the Platform offers support based on your needs!
We help business to Assess, Commit, Transform and Disclose their relationship with nature. We do this through four different type of activities:
Through the provision of educational webinars, the Platform endeavours to increase business understanding of their impacts and dependencies on nature.
The Platform aims to raise awareness among a critical mass of business in Europe, and help them understand how to take their first steps on biodiversity.
The Platform aims to guide business through the complex landscape of policies, initiatives, tools and methods to assess their impacts and dependencies.
Business transformation should be celebrated. The Platform collaborates with leading companies and showcases inspiring business examples.
