Without Biological Diversity No Economic Diversity

Protecting our "natural capital": The 'Biodiversity in Good Company' Initiative is a cross-sectorial collaboration of companies that have joined forces to protect and sustainably use our worldwide biological diversity. Through this commitment they contribute to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). Its aim is to halt the dramatic loss of ecosystems, species and genetic diversity. undefinedRead more about the initiative undefinedBecome a member
