Get Involved. The United Nations has declared 2010 – 2020 to be the UN Decade on Biodiversity. The business world should be and must be better incorporated into the implementation of the “Convention on Biological Diversity”. We invite all other pioneer companies of all sizes to join the ‘Biodiversity in Good Company’ Initiative. Companies and ecosystems are interdependent. Companies not only have an impact on the earth's biodiversity and ecosystems, but they also depend upon these systems in many different ways – be it directly from fresh water, wood, fibre, food or indirectly from flood protection and erosion control.
At the same time, public awareness about biodiversity protection as an important issue is on the rise. This is increasing pressure on political actors and businesses.

Be a Pioneer – Do It Your Way. Each company is different. Each industry has its own conditions and challenges. Membership is not about being a perfect company. It is about the goal of wanting to be better.
