Scope

The nature and biodiversity transformation will examine how the impacts of business contribute to stable and resilient ecosystems which enable humanity and nature to co-exist within planetary boundaries on biodiversity, climate, land, oceans and water. 

The benchmark assessments will measure and track corporate performance towards a nature-positive future by measuring how companies are reducing their impact and even regenerating ecosystems.

In 2021, the scope of WBA’s circular transformation was expanded to cover nature and biodiversity as recognition of the need for greater understanding, transparency and accountability of business impact on our environment.

Milestones

The Nature and Biodiversity Benchmark will assess 1,000 leading companies on their contribution to the 2030 Agenda. From 12 January to 2 March 2022, a public consultation will be conducted to map existing behaviours and assess the practical action possible.

In April 2022 we will publish the final methodology, incorporating the feedback received from our stakeholders. Data collection, verification, and analysis of the companies in scope will take place during summer 2022, with the launch of the first benchmark due in November 2022.
