Biodiversity is a prerequisite for human life

Biodiversity means the richness of both species and habitats living on Earth. It is also a prerequisite for human existence. All businesses and societies depend on the biological regulatory and productive services provided by nature’s diversity. Deforestation endangers the continuity of these ecosystem services and thus, for example, the continuity of business opportunities. Stopping the loss of biodiversity is one of the biggest environmental challenges of our time.

Biodiversity is a new, emerging theme for the economic system, and its importance as a critical capital to be protected has only recently been recognised. Taking biodiversity into account is not only a matter of risk management for companies, but also offers new business opportunities.

As companies embark on the sustainable management of natural capital, it is predicted that there will be a significant nature-positive shift in the market that will challenge the business models of all companies. Together with our customers, we identify risks and opportunities and help create value with nature-positive business.

Examples of our services in this area: business strategies, road maps and business models that take into account the nature-positive transition, analyses and calculations of nature effects, dependencies and risks, and ecological compensation reports. In addition, we offer target reviews and plans to promote biodiversity.
