Biodiversity in Good Company2016-12-05
‘Biodiversity in Good Company’ will present its position paper “Mainstreaming the Topic of Biodiversity in Corporate Sustainability Management”. We will highlight some activities of the network and its members who all sign a “Leadership Declaration”. We will inform about the progress of the German "Unternehmen Biologische Vielfalt 2020" ("Enterprise Biological Diversity 2020"), which was initiated by the Federal Environment Ministry in 2013 as a platform for business federations, nature conservancy organizations and authorities. Together with the environmental NGO Deutsche Umwelthilfe we will also introduce to you our event format “Discussion forum ecosystem services”. The India Business & Biodiversity Initiative (IBBI) will highlight case studies of some Indian companies in a publication. These businesses have an institutionalized framework for mainstreaming biodiversity aspects into their business operations, policies and strategies. IBBI will give a cinematic presentation showcasing the process adopted by the three IBBI member companies. The case studies are from two important sectors (agriculture and forestry), they address impacts as well as dependencies on biodiversity and show how companies contribute to the National Biodiversity Targets (NBTs) of India.
