Biodiversity & Ecosystem Services Committee

The Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services Committee was established in 2014 in recognition of the importance of biodiversity and the role and responsibility of companies in their sourcing of agricultural raw materials.

In 2016, the Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services Committee was incorporated into the Horizon Committee.

The key results from the Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services Committee include:

- the organisation of a workshop and a field visit in Murcia (2014);

-  the development of practical guidance documents on how to integrate measures at farm level and to engage successfully with farmers through the collection of case-studies from members (2014);

- the co-organisation of the workshop ‘Business for Sustainable Landscapes’ in partnership with EcoAgriculture Partners, Sustainable Food Lab, and International Union for Conservation of Nature’s SUSTAIN programme at the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center, Italy (2016).
