BBOP offers the private sector a variety of guidelines and information on how to mitigate the negative impacts of their business activities.
This partnership between companies,
governments and conservation experts pursues the strategy of "no net loss”
Compensation measures follow the principle of avoiding,
minimising, attenuating and compensating impacts. Pilot projects have been
implemented in the mining, infrastructure and tourism sectors and a standard
will be developed in 2010.
BBOP is coordinated by the NGOs Forest Trends and World Conservation Society (WCS). KfW Bankengruppe is one of the more than 40 advisory institutions.
