We face an alarming rate of biodiversity loss. About 25% of all species are threatened, meaning that around 1 million species already face extinction, many within decades. But what can you do as a (small or medium-sized) company to reverse this trend and make a positive contribution to biodiversity, benefitting not only the planet but also your business operations and your clients?
At Nature^Squared we offer our expertise on business & biodiversity and support firms on their journey to integrate biodiversity into business decision-making. We do this by assessing a company’s connection with nature, developing a strategy, and providing implementation support. With our pragmatic mindset, we can offer on-demand advice and tailor-made support focused on creating rapid change in business operations to help preserve natural resources and boost economic performance.
Together, we will identify key areas of change and explore what type of support is preferred. We are experienced in leading the different phases of the sustainability trajectory: from analyzing the company’s impacts and dependencies on nature and performing a materiality analysis, to developing a biodiversity strategy and action plan, and providing concrete implementation support. We take the time to get to know you so we can offer advice and practical guidance in areas that matter most to your business. We work in close collaboration and effectively respond to developments arising along the way.
Our approach starts with two workshops to help you and your colleagues understand how your business interacts with nature and what your main impacts and dependencies are. This helps you to identify which business operations to focus on for creating a positive changes that is also material to your business. We will translate these insights into a concrete action plan on biodiversity. Next to the workshops, we can organize regular meetings to support with the implementation and to discuss progress. Do you wish biodiversity to be fully taken care of? We can also act as your external sustainability manager, providing on the job support for strategy development and implementation.
