Biodiversity Neutral Initiative (BNI)

Biodiversity Neutral Initiative (BNI) helps companies assess biodiversity impacts, implement best practices with respect to the biodiversity mitigation hierarchy and then offset net residual damage to become biodiversity neutral.

Biodiversity Neutral Initiative (BNI) is global in scope, collaborating with major international conservation groups, energy and mining companies, socially responsible investors, auditing and certification companies, and government regulators. Regulatory standards exist for environmental offsets in the U.S., Australia, Europe, and Brazil.

BNI will build on those experiences to develop voluntary standards that can be applied in a broad range of ecosystems found worldwide. This will be particularly important for multi-national corporations operating in regions where biodiversity is highest and impacts are of greatest concern. BNI standards are being developed using a consultative approach that includes conservation groups, scientists, and industry.
