Without biodiversity, there is no business. Companies are therefore major players in this landscape and are responsible for their impact on biodiversity and ecosystem services. But, in order to act responsibly, they need information on where these biodiversity impact-related risks and opportunities lie. IUCN and WBCSD have joined forces to develop this manual that describes the various knowledge products that exist and explain how they can help businesses in assessing, valuing, managing and reporting on businesses’ impacts and dependencies on biodiversity, and in achieving compliance with environmental standards and certification schemes.
