Recognizing that there was no clear and reliable way to answer the opening question “what is good enough?”, over 90 collaborators in the Business and Biodiversity Offsets Programme (BBOP) have developed a Standard on Biodiversity Offsets. The aim of the Standard is to help companies, lenders, governments, civil society and auditors navigate through the mitigation hierarchy and establish sustainable conservation programs to achieve no net loss or a net gain of biodiversity. It allows companies to assess and manage business risk and opportunity, compare their performance with peers in their sector and distinguish themselves from competitors. This overview document provides an introduction to the Business and Biodiversity Offsets Programme, its work to date in helping companies meet these new challenges and opportunities, and ways to get involved. It is an update of the overview first published in 2009.
