04 Mar Biological Diversity Protocol
The Biological Diversity Protocol (BD Protocol) is the first tool that provides a standardised approach to help any organisation account for and consolidate all its net impacts on ecosystems and species. It allows all companies, big or small, and no matter what industry, to establish a baseline dataset for determining their impact on biodiversity and identify areas of improvement. It enables companies to integrate biodiversity data into their integrated reports and inform shareholders of measures to reduce their impact, for the benefit of future generations of both customers and investors. It is the platform that should, ideally, guide the private sector towards vastly reducing their impact on the ecosystems and species that are crucial for all life on earth.
