UK Business Biodiversity Forum launched

Businesses from across the UK’s economy have come together to launch a new forum aimed at mainstreaming biodiversity throughout the private sector.

The UK Business Biodiversity Forum (UKBBF) was launched at a packed online event in March, with presentations from founding members including Barratt Developments plc and Skanska. There were also words of support for the initiative from Will Lockhart, Defra’s deputy director and joint head of international environment negotiations.

The UKBBF is open to businesses of all shapes and sizes. In seeking to achieve its central aim of mainstreaming biodiversity into business planning and development, it will provide a platform for businesses to share knowledge and build networks. It will also play host to technical seminars in this field.

As the forum’s membership grows, IEMA will begin to provide it with secretariat support. More information about the UKBBF can be found at its LinkedIn page at
