Biodiversity reporting refers to the systematic measurement and disclosure of an organization’s impact on biodiversity and ecosystems. Just as financial reporting provides insights into a company’s economic performance, biodiversity reporting sheds light on its environmental footprint.

International initiatives, such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Planetary Boundaries, as well as The Dasgupta Review, highlight biodiversity as essential for the sustainability of natural and socioeconomic systems.

Direct biodiversity-related considerations related to the SDGs include life below water (SDG 14) and life on land (SDG 15). In addition, biodiversity underpins many actions needed to meet the other SDGs, for example playing a pivotal role in tackling hunger (SDG 2), good health and well-being (SDG 3), promoting responsible consumption and production (SDG 12) and climate action (SDG 13). Biodiversity is integral to the planetary boundary of biosphere integrity, as well as adaptation to climate change, land-system change and ocean acidification.

Our service is focused to sensitize, guide and mentor Indian businesses and organizations in biodiversity conservation and sustainable use related to their operations, across their value chain and beyond towards conservation of India’s biodiversity.

Biodiversity-related corporate reporting is a fast-moving, developing area, and there is ongoing work to create harmonization particularly related to measurement and disclosure.

We mentor businesses and organizations for Biodiversity awareness and conservation practices as per Indian Business and Biodiversity Initiative (IBBI) and Biodiversity reporting as per GRI reporting framework.

Biodiversity has both business and societal value. It is integral to businesses, economies, and wider society, being the living component of natural capital and underpinning the ecosystem services people receive from nature.
