Working with Business
International companies have an increasing impact on biodiversity as the world's economy grows and becomes more globalised. At the same time, forward-looking businesses are ever more aware that the use of natural resources must be sustainable.
The principles and goals set by the Earth Summit ten years ago, and further refined by the Summit for Sustainable Development in Johannesburg in 2002, provide a framework and opportunity for businesses and conservation organisations to work together for long-term environmental sustainability. Maintaining, restoring and enhancing biodiversity are essential to this goal.
BirdLife believes in a future where the world's pressing development needs are met sustainably. BirdLife enters relationships with business in order to find constructive solutions, but without compromising the public and open promotion of best environmental practice.
Our current partnerships include:
- Conservation Leadership Programme (formerly BP Conservation Programme)
- Rio Tinto - BirdLife International Programme
- CEMEX - BirdLife International partnership
