In 2017, Amanprana was asked by the FPS Public Health, Food Chain Safety and Environment to become one of the five Belgian pioneering companies that assist them as advisers in the development of digital instruments for all other Belgian companies regarding BeBiodiversiteit .
What is bio-diversity?
The first UN Bio-diversity Convention of Rio De Janeiro (1992) defines bio-diversity as follows:
“Biological diversity is the understanding given to the diversity of life on Earth and the natural patterns that it forms. (…) Biodiversity also includes the genetic differences between species. (…) And another aspect of biodiversity is the diversity of ecosystems.”
And that is the problem today: the increasing impact of human activities has led to a dramatic decline in biodiversity. Species disappear more than a thousand times faster today than in the past (millions of) years.
Protector of biodiversity.
A company can act protectively in many ways. According to the Belgian government, initiator of #BeBiodiversiteit, a company can take various actions to preserve biodiversity. She sees different options within these four areas:
As a company with business premises, you can create a garden focused on local plants and flowers.
This includes the installation of green rooftops on company buildings.
All processes within companies that maintain the functioning of ecosystem services, eg water cycle, climate regulation, etc.
For example: purchasing raw materials from suppliers who promote biodiversity or conservation of ecosystems, …)
