Business and Biodiversity

Business sectors

The private sector plays a critical role in determining how biodiversity is used and conserved, and there are clear benefits to businesses in improving environmental performance, including reduced costs, improved innovation, and increased likelihood of regulatory approval.

IUCN’s mandate for engaging the private sector is rooted in IUCN’s mission to “Influence, encourage and assist societies to conserve the integrity and diversity of nature and ensure that any use of natural resources is equitable and ecologically sustainable”.

In this section, you can find our knowledge products and tools organised according to the industrial sectors where we are actively engaging with business.
