Looking to large companies that are beginning to take action to protect biosphere integrity, energy, chemical, and pharmaceutical companies Engie, BASF, IPSEN, and others are joining forces to help build the collaborative platform Biodiversity and Industry. This platform develops a holistic approach to biodiversity issues in relation to business strategy.
Minimising negative impacts on biodiversity while maximising new business opportunities through nature-based solutions, Biodiversity and Industry assesses the impacts of planned interventions–such as new factories, roads, and other projects–on the value chain with practical advice on how to implement countermeasures to protect biodiversity.
As a result, companies involved with Biodiversity and Industry will contribute to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), meet increasing consumer demands, and rise to the heightening expectations from EU policymakers ahead of the European Commission’s new 2030 Biodiversity Strategy–a comprehensive and systemic plan for protecting nature and reversing the degradation of ecosystems. Tackling the issue of biodiversity is now part of Europe’s growth strategy–companies that fail to keep up will be left behind.
