This webinar was organised as a “partner event” of the EU Green Week 2020 to present the LIFE Methodology developed by LIFE Institute from Brazil to help business and finance sector to objectively quantify their impact on natural resources.
Alice Alexandre, Executive Director of LIFE Institute, introduced both the Methodology and the LIFE Key software, developed to improve the efficiency of environmental data and reporting. David Álvarez, Executive Director of Ecoacsa, explained the adaptation process to the European context, whose pilot phase will start in November 2020 in Spain.
Many companies strive for a unified picture of their biodiversity performance, especially if they are involved in multiple activities, sites, products or brands, with multiple raw materials and supply chains. To help them deal with these issues, the International Union for Nature Conservation has issued for public comment the “Draft Guidelines for Planning and Monitoring Corporate Biodiversity Performance.”
Giulia Carbone, Executive Director of the IUCN Global Business and Biodiversity Programme held a live discussion with Spanish business representatives on how to enhance the Guidelines in order to make them more useful for businesses.
