MAKE BIODIVERSITY YOUR BUSINESS
 
ECNC-European Centre for Nature Conservation has launched the European Biodiversity Standard (EBS), an independent tool for companies to assess, upgrade and profile their biodiversity performance.
 
Biodiversity and ecosystem services are vital elements for a growing number of companies. Worldwide and in Europe, the integration of biodiversity considerations in business operations is receiving more and more attention. However, companies often struggle with the question of how to address biodiversity in a practical way in their business operation. 
 
The EBS provides practical tools for companies to address biodiversity and to measure, improve and demonstrate publicly the company’s ecological performance.
