The scientific community considers the lost of biodiversity to be the largest challenge of our time second only to climate change. Many companies are reacting appropriately by analyzing and managing the complex relationships between their economic activity and the resulting impacts it has on the environment. However, they often brush against the limits of their own ability to implement needed change because of the complexity of various interconnected systems.
The cooperation of companies with nongovernmental organizations such as the GNF is therefore an important step for strengthening the integration of biodiversity knowledge and understanding into company management, thereby protecting biodiversity in the long-run as the base for economic development.
The GNF is moving forward by establishing good and trust-based cooperative relationships with various stakeholders (agencies, companies, and foundations) in the development of future-oriented and transferable solutions for these contemporary challenges. With a diverse array of collaborators, we can develop profitable models and action plans that will benefit economic activity as well as the environment and its natural resources. Come and participate!
