Earthwatch Institute (Europe) recently published Engaging Businesses with Biodiversity - Guidelines for Local Biodiversity Partnerships, which is now available at www.businessandbiodiversity.org/LBP_Guidelines.html. The publication provides Local Biodiversity Partnerships with practical guidance on developing programmes leading to raised awareness and participation in biodiversity conservation by companies.
The guidelines and associated tools were developed with the help of many Local Biodiversity Partnerships. Workshops run across England, Wales and Scotland stimulated discussions on many of the issues covered in the Guidelines and provided valuable materials.
Earthwatch Institute (Europe) runs the UK Business and Biodiversity Resource Centre funded by DEFRA through the Environment Action Fund. For further information about the BBRC and the events and workshops which Earthwatch runs on Business and Biodiversity please contact us on + 44 (0) 1865 318 800.
