Description

The private sector is often criticized for its excessive exploitation of natural resources – inescapably leading to their degradation – as well as generating negative externalities for the sake of profit. It is therefore difficult to minimize the role it can play in biodiversity conservation. Although there are several examples where the private sector is actively involved in biodiversity & environmental actions, today’s companies must be made more aware of the catastrophic consequences of biodiversity loss, and responsible for the conservation and economic use of biodiversity and natural resources. How can we make businesses major players in the preservation of ecosystems worldwide?
