Abstract: This guide is about biodiversity – what it is and how it forms the bedrock of the wellbeing of our societies – and about the business and biodiversity nexus – how an understanding of biodiversity can help inform and direct the decisions to improve business operations. The overall aim of the book is to stimulate Dutch and EU companies to manage, report on and mitigate both their direct and indirect impacts on biodiversity overseas. The guide: (a) presents the key concepts involved with an understanding of biodiversity, (b) outlines the business case for biodiversity; (c) provides guidance for developing biodiversity corporate action; and (d) presents some of the tools, good practices and initiatives in key sectors that tackle biodiversity issues, illustrated by Dutch case studies.
