Our Commitment to Sustainability  

Environment

Biodiversity Audits - Our biodiversity audit program and digital app aim to build the business case for biodiversity and to encourage businesses to integrate biodiversity into their practice and strategies, enabling companies to understand the importance of protecting, restoring and promoting sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably managing forests, combating desertification, and halting and reversing land degradation and biodiversity loss. We work with companies using our capacity building audits, through the following process as described below. Firstly, we conduct a needs assessment to identify the gap between current and recommended practice across several key performance indicators including, compliance agreements, laws and policies, national and institutional strategy and policy on biodiversity and accountability, coordination and capacity. Secondly, we design a capacity building program with the objective, scope and criteria that identifies areas of weakness and strength and transition companies from current to recommended practice. Thirdly, we recommend several changes to their practice which includes, communication, education, training and participation. And finally, we provide them with an online biodiversity app that will assist them with ongoing continuous monitoring, evaluation and improvement. More Info
