The European Biodiversity Summit is the only event on sustainability and biodiversity in Europe with a distinct business focus. It will take place on 17 and 18 April 2012 in Stuttgart, Germany. IUCN is among the main organizers of the Summit.
The 2-day event will provide the latest information on biodiversity valuation, new EU regulations and the link to climate change. Practical examples of how business can seize biodiversity opportunities will be presented. High-level representatives from companies such as Unilever, Iberdrola, Otto Group and Robert Bosch will join prominent politicians and leaders and present keynotes in front of more than 500 participants.
The market place exposition during the Summit will give participants the opportunity to connect with these businesses as well as with NGOs, politicians and scientists. The plenary sessions of the conference will be complemented by diverse expert workshops focusing on business- and biodiversity-related topics, ranging from legal compliance and biodiversity finance to supply chain management and valuation of nature. The Summit is organized by the European Business and Biodiversity Campaign, an initiative funded under the EU LIFE Programme.
The European Biodiversity Summit is an opportunity for corporations of all sectors throughout Europe to demonstrate their leadership in sustainability and biodiversity.
