New start 'Biodiversity in Good Company' Initiative
After the end of the German CBD Presidency, the member companies have now established new structures to function as a Business Initiative. A coordination office has been set up in Berlin and is in charge of the project management. The coordination office handles the operations of the Initiative in consultation with a members‘ elected Steering Committee, and implements the decisions taken.
Our member companies are ready to take on responsibility to contribute to the preservation of biological diversity and enter into a dialogue with policy and society. They see the Initiative as a platform for learning and dialogue and want to set an example for other companies through, inter alia, the communication of best practices. The content-related work will be approached in project partnerships with governmental and non-governmental organisations as well as research institutes. In addition, several companies are engaged in an international supply-chain management project with the GIZ.
