India Business & Biodiversity Initiative (IBBI)

Concurrent to India’s Presidency of the Conference of Parties (COP) to the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), Indian companies have joined hands to address the critical issue of biodiversity loss under a national initiative. The India Business & Biodiversity Initiative (IBBI) serves as a national platform of businesses and its stakeholders for dialogue sharing and learning, ultimately leading to mainstreaming sustainable management of biological diversity into businesses. IBBI’s vision is to sensitise, guide and mentor Indian business organisations in biodiversity conservation and sustainable use related to their operations, across their value chain and beyond towards conservation of India’s biodiversity.

 

On invitation by the Indian Ministry of Environment, Forests & Climate Change (MoEFCC), the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) is hosting IBBI with the support of Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). The initiative was launched on the occasion of the International Day for Biological Diversity on May 22, 2014, at WWF-India Secretariat, Lodi Estate, New Delhi. The launch also followed the launch of the IBBI logo and website. Link: www.businessbiodiversity.in.

 

Indo-German Biodiversity Programme supports IBBI under its project, ‘Incentives for Sustainable Management of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (ISBM)’, which is commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
