The EU Pollinators Initiative: long and short-term objectives to halt the decline of pollinating insects

The EU Business @ Biodiversity Platform provides a unique forum for dialogue and policy interface to discuss the links between business and biodiversity at EU level. It was set up by the European Commission with the aim to work with and help businesses integrate natural capital and biodiversity considerations into business practices.

Why do businesses need to care about
natural capital and biodiversity?

Every business impacts and depends on natural capital to some degree and will experience risks and/or opportunities associated with these relationships. All of the impacts and dependencies create costs and benefits not only for the business, but also for society. The European Commission and the members of the EU B@B Platform agree that there is a lot to gain for nature and for businesses from better understanding the interdependencies between business activities and natural capital and biodiversity.

Workstreams

The EU B@B Platform works with pioneering companies to develop a set of business tools and approaches that integrate biodiversity considerations into business practice. Our work is focused across three separate thematic workstreams:
