The European Business and Biodiversity (B@B) Platform was launched by the European Commission as an EU-level forum for sustained and strategic dialogue about the links between business and biodiversity. Minuartia takes part in the Platform in the Workstream ‘Innovation for Biodiversity and Business’.
The Platform will deliver tangible results by working with business to develop tools and approaches that integrate biodiversity considerations into business practice. The Platform also helps Member States to coordinate and raise awareness of innovative national and international initiatives, and to showcase best practices at EU level.
B@B began its work in 2008. The first phase focused on six sectors: agriculture, forestry, finance, food supply, non-energy extractive industry and tourism. Today, it is developing the second phase that has been opened to all sectors.
The Platform is working to more actively engage business with the European Commission in the biodiversity field, and to coordinate with other platforms in Europe and worldwide that are engaging the private sector and business with biodiversity and nature conservation.
