Biodiversity Strategy

Countering the loss of biodiversity

Why a biodiversity strategy? Reporting requirements on non-financial topics are becoming increasingly important for companies. In recent years, the focus has been on climate change, but now the issue of biodiversity is becoming increasingly important. The loss of biodiversity is accelerating. The World Economic Forum places it fourth on its global risk list, after climate change and extreme weather events. Biodiversity loss has major implications. About 1/3 of global food products depend on insect pollination – that’s triple-digit billions worth of products annually. This example illustrates our dependence on ecosystem services. Science and conservation organizations have been trying to raise awareness of this for a long time, and now legislators and rating organizations are also responding.


Biodiversity also affects companies with the reporting obligation:

  • As a company, you need to understand the links between your business activities and biodiversity impacts (for different business and also supplier locations)
  • Businesses also need to focus on the biggest drivers of biodiversity loss and their associated impacts and interdependencies
  • In this context, increase transparency along your value chains
