Business and ecosystems are inextricably linked. Business not only affects ecosystem services but also rely upon them. Biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation pose significant risks to companies but can also represent new opportunities, for those who have anticipated the changes or are leveraging new biodiversity markets. Awareness of the business case for action is consequently increasing and more and more companies are taking action.
However, business alone can’t solve the issue, and partnerships with NGOs and governments appear to be an effective way to scale up impacts.
