The EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020 aims to halt biodiversity loss and to conserve ecosystem services. The strategy contains 6 operational targets and 20 associated actions. Action 7 is to ensure no net loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services. Under action 7, the Commission is foreseen to propose, by 2015, an initiative on No Net Loss. The purpose of the present consultation is to gather views about the future initiative that the Commission is scheduled to propose in 2015.
