Get involved, assess yourself!


Now it is up to your company to get involved and show your commitment to biodiversity. After reading about how biodiversity affects your business and how your business affects biodiversity, what steps do you need to take to get involved and apply for the EBS? It is actually quite simple!


By donating € 300,- (all-in) your company can acquire the EBS Self-Assessment Pack which you can use to assess your company’s biodiversity performance. The proceeds of the donation will be used to maintain and further the EBS system and website, to continue the work done by ECNC and to profile the achievements of the EBS and the assessed companies. Furthermore, we will provide you with a helpdesk function if you run into any questions during the self-assessment procedure.



At the bottom of this page you can find the bank details of ECNC. By donating the above mentioned amount of € 300,- to our bank account, with reference 'Donation European Biodiversity Standard', your company acquires the digital EBS Self-Assessment Pack. After we have received confirmation of your donation, we will send you the Self-Assessment Pack within five working days. The pack will be customized for your company, therefore we might contact you beforehand with the request for additional information.


You can get started with your self-assessment as soon as you receive the Self-Assessment Pack. The package will also contain information on which steps to take and how to get in touch with us, when you think you are ready and you want to apply for the external assessment to obtain the EBS.


Please also specify the e-mail address to which you would like us to send the Self-Assessment Pack.
