Mitigating biodiversity loss demands corporate accountability

Of 20 internationally-set biodiversity targets, only six were partially met by the 2020 deadline.

Holding organizations accountable for their impacts is crucial to break the chain of events on both biodiversity loss and climate change — for which transparency is the underpinning enabler.

The GRI Biodiversity Standard is already used annually by at least 2,000 organizations, out of the more than 10,000 companies reporting with the GRI Standards — the world’s most widely used sustainability reporting standards.

The challenges we face to address and reverse societal impacts on biodiversity are formidable. Yet I firmly believe that improved transparency by organizations will drive the actions that contribute to the changes that we urgently need to see.
