Biodiversity & Ecosystem Services Committee

The Biodiversity & Ecosystem Services Committee support food and drink companies in finding answers to these questions:

  • What are the potential 'Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services' issues a food/drink company can expect when it sources crop X from region Y?
  • Where can I find information? How do I start to assess 'Biodiversity & Ecosystem Services'
  • How do I evaluate risks/ opportunities?
  • How do I manage the risks or mitigate them?
  • What government programs and financial resources (e.g. CAP Greening) exist?
  • What role is a buying company expected to play?
