European Business Biodiversity Campaign

Newsletter of the European Business & Biodiversity Campaign

Dear Readers,

While awareness on biodiversity as a pivotal aspect of sustainable business practices is growing, challenges remain. Many businesses still struggle to grasp the intricacies of biodiversity and its implications for their operations. Others face barriers in implementing biodiversity-friendly practices due to perceived costs or lack of know-how. Governments, academia, civil society, and the private sector must come together to provide the necessary knowledge, resources, and incentives to drive meaningful change. We need to foster a culture of biodiversity-consciousness where every business decision considers its impact on the natural world.

We hope you enjoy the read, best regards,

Your EBBC Team
