GLRPPR Sector Resource: Eco4Biz
"Eco4Biz - Ecosystem services and biodiversity tools to support business decision-making" is a structured overview of existing tools and approaches. Eco4Biz features a decision tree, composed of two questions corporate managers might ask themselves: 1) At what scale would you like to carry out an assessment, i.e. global, landscape (including individual site and portfolio of sites), or product level? 2) What outputs would best support your decision-making, e.g. a map (including supporting reports), a quantitative value, or a score showing priority areas?
Tools are identified as primarily focusing on either ecosystem services (such as provisioning, regulating and cultural services), or biodiversity. The toolkit will be updated on a regular basis to keep pace with developments as more companies proactively measure, manage and mitigate their impact and dependence on nature.
Eco4Biz comes in both interactive and print versions, available in high and low resolution.
