What is Business for Biodiversity?
The purpose of the platform is to encourage and incentivise Irish businesses to assess their impacts and dependencies on biodiversity
Established in 2022, Business for Biodiversity aims to support Irish business in their transition to nature positive.
The Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage and the department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine have jointly funded the development of a national business and biodiversity platform to promote and support measurable, certifiable actions on biodiversity within the private sector.
The purpose of the Platform is to encourage and incentivise Irish businesses to assess their impacts and dependencies on biodiversity, with a view to mitigating and availing of associated risks and opportunities respectively.
The overarching aim is to support implementation of Ireland’s National Biodiversity Action Plan, to halt harmful activities and promote the restoration and regeneration of Ireland’s natural heritage.
