UN Biodiversity Conference in Hyderabad
The loss of species, ecosystems and biological diversity is dramatic. Steady progress in international environmental policy is vital to enable global businesses to make the greatest possible contribution towards protecting biological diversity and ecosystems. From 9 – 18 October 2012 the parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), an international agreement negotiated 20 years ago, are coming together in Hyderabad, India for their eleventh conference of the parties (CoP). The ‘Biodiversity in Good Company’ Initiative will showcase the business sector’s dedication at this event through a variety of activities.
