Corporate biodiversity: What companies need to know and how to get started

April 11, 2024

Biodiversity—the variability among living organisms in land, freshwater, and ocean ecosystems—is crucial for human survival, well-being, and the economy. Over half of the world’s GDP, amounting to $44 trillion, is moderately or highly dependent on nature and its services. Currently, humanity exceeds the safe operational limits for six of nine planetary boundaries, jeopardizing Earth’s stability and leading to a significant decline in biodiversity.
