The EU Business @ Biodiversity Platform will participate in the Green Week – the biggest annual conference on European environment policy, organized by the European Commission.
During Green Week the Platform will be presented at the stand hosted by the European Landowners' Organization, one of the implementing partners of the B@B Platform. Visitors will have the opportunity to meet with representatives from the B@B team and get acquainted with the Platform's activities and outputs. A selection of case studies showcasing best practices in the private sector will also be available for visitors at the stand.
The ceremony for the European Business Awards for the Environment (EBAE) will be held during the Green Week. For the first time a new 'Business and Biodiversity' Award will also be given to a European company with outstanding achievements in halting biodiversity loss and supporting natural ecosystems. The 14 nominees for this year's Awards will be promoted and will have their projects exhibited during the Green Week. The winners will be announced at a ceremony in Brussels on the evening of Thursday 24 May 2012.
Green Week is organized for the 12th time and will take place from 22 to 25 May 2012 in Brussels. This year's theme is "Water". Over the past decade, the conference has established itself as an unmissable event for anyone involved with protecting the environment. The 2011 edition attracted more than 3,000 participants from government, business and industry, non-governmental organisations, academia and the media.
