Biodiversity management in the cement and aggregates sector : Biodiversity Indicator and Reporting System (BIRS)

Complete Title: 
Biodiversity management in the cement and aggregates sector : Biodiversity Indicator and Reporting System (BIRS)
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

Businesses are increasingly mindful of their impacts on biodiversity and how they can address these impacts through proactive biodiversity management. Monitoring can provide companies with a better understanding whether they are achieving their intended results, and also aid in decision-making. IUCN created the Biodiversity Indicator and Reporting System (BIRS) to guide companies in the cement and aggregates sector in adopting a standardized system for monitoring biodiversity at their extractive operations, and to encourage regular reporting on biodiversity attributes at the company level. This guide to BIRS describes the key elements of the methodology and provides an overview of how it can be adapted to address company needs.
