The address of the companies happens in cooperation with the Chambers of Commerce and Industry (IHK), umbrella organisations, trade associations as well as labour unions and communities.
The project is a model initiative which generates experience in the field of greening company premises and provides experience and concrete examples of realization which can be used throughout the whole country. In four regional forums the results and experiences of the activities are carried into different parts of Germany. In addition to big companies, small and medium enterprises are addressed as well to support biodiversity and the redesign of their company areas. They also get informed about the possibilities and chances biodiversity offers.
The project uses synergies from the cooperation with the "European Business and Biodiversity Campaign” and builds on the experiences with biodiversity checks. Additionally, the results and experiences of the Interreg-Project "Companies and Biodiversity in the Lake Constance Region” have influence on the undertaking. Scientific support is coming from an Research-Project of the Institute for Ecological Economy Research which investigates the entrepreneurialadvantages of greening Company premises and the implementation of biodiversity goals in the development of companies.
