Being primarily an alliance of experienced field-based conservation practitioners and academics, BCA’s value is the direct connection to communities, project supply and science. The BCA aims to define and categorise biodiversity credits, co-develop a model set of digital standards for the market, and establish a peer review mechanism for biodiversity credits.
The BCA and its members will continue to work with partners in the biodiversity credits market in relation to their integrity and governance initiatives.
The BCA is open to and welcomes discussions on how it can cooperate with ecological standard setters. Members of the BCA are already participating actively in standard setters’ working groups on biodiversity credits.
Business for Nature is a global coalition of more than 80+ influential organizations and forward-thinking companies. Together, they drive credible business action and policy ambition to achieve a nature-positive economy for all by 2030.
In December, governments around the world adopted an ambitious global agreement on nature called the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework. This is the equivalent of the Paris Climate Agreement and includes four goals and 23 different targets and provides a framework to halt and reverse nature loss by 2030.
Business for Nature provide the courage, comfort and technical expertise to governments so that they adopt, implement and enforce ambitious nature policies and help scale and speed up business action by strengthening, clarifying and amplifying why and how companies should act now. The organisation also create business-government dialogues to inform the development of National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs).
