Nature provides services to the economy worth billions of dollars. This value is being estimated through to initiatives like TEEB (The Economics of Ecosystems & Biodiversity). It is fostered by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the EU and different national governments, and its objective is to determine ecosystems’ value and halt their destruction.
Fundación Global Nature has been working for many years on “Business and Biodiversity”, supporting the integration of biodiversity and ecosystem services. We started in 2010 coordinating in Spain the European Business and Biodiversity Campaign. Since then we have collaborated with multiple entities and supported different initiatives.
We currently participate in the coordination in Spain of the Business and Biodiversity Working Group. It was created in the framework of the National Environment Congress (CONAMA) but its activity is constant between editions. More than 50 companies, administration and non-for-profit entities are represented in this working group. We are also strategic members of the Spanish Business and Biodiversity Initiative (IEEB) managed by Biodiversity Foundation – Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment. We belong to the EUBusiness @ Biodiversity Platform and to the Natural Capital Coalition.
We regularly collaborate with businesses in different areas:
- Elaboration of strategies and assessments
- Development of Biodiversity Action Plans
- Design and implementation of in situ conservation actions
- Elaboration of guidelines, standards, codes and technical instructions
- Stakeholder engagement and participatory design of biodiversity conservation measures
- Development of indicators
- Communication, dissemination and training actions
A tener en cuenta
Biological diversity and ecosystem services depend on businesses, and the costs derived from their loss and degradation must be taken into account in corporate decision-making
Toma de decisiones
We facilitate the identification, quantification and/or estimation of the dependencies and environmental impacts relevant to decision making and reporting
