News 2016 and biodiversity Forum Cancun Mexique

According to the 2016 Global Risks Report of the World Economic Forum, biodiversity loss and ecosystem collapse are among the 10 major risks faced by the private sector, in terms of their potential impact.

In light of such a possible systemic collapse, it is in the best interest of businesses, not only governments, to take into account the value of biodiversity and ecosystem services in productive systems.

Mainstreaming biodiversity into the planning and operation of productive sectors implies integrating conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity in business plans, beyond corporate social responsibility strategies.

This innovative approach will be addressed at the 2016 Business and Biodiversity Forum (B&BF 2016), which will take place in parallel to the Ministerial High Level Segment of the 13th Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP13-CBD) of the United Nations.
