Summary

Biodiversity is high on the corporate agenda and the loss of biodiversity is a significant concern among consumers. At the same time, a new global framework on biodiversity is set to galvanise action across public and private sectors. Companies are working to understand and measure the impact and dependencies on biodiversity. Increasingly, companies are looking at how their raw materials and supply chains can contribute to restoring nature and improving livelihoods. UEBT research, based on local assessments conducted by UEBT and its member companies, shows 1) the high biodiversity importance of botanicals and the ecosystems in they grow, 2) their key role in the livelihoods of local and often marginalized people around the world, and 3) the remaining biodiversity risks and challenges in botanicals, coupled with opportunities for positive impact.
