Innovation for Biodiversity and Business

The Innovation workstream seeks to promote innovations that contribute to nature protection. The workstream provides opportunities for businesses, including SMEs, by showcasing innovative companies / business models and identifying opportunities for fostering new business models.

Through this workstream, we will:

  • Showcase innovative business models and companies involved in green infrastructure and ecological restoration (though other relevant business innovations might also be showcased);
  • Identify priorities for further research on critical issues relating to these innovations and opportunities for their further development;
  • Analyse opportunities at EU level to foster new business models, such as benefit corporations, which might contribute to nature and biodiversity objectives.

Innovation Workstream Lead: Guy Duke, Independent Consultant
