Biodiversity offsets and the mitigation hierarchy: a review of current application in the banking sector




Despite society’s indisputable reliance on biodiversity and the ecosystem services it underpins, biodiversity is undervalued by modern economies and diminishing at a rapid rate. Over the past 50 years, humans have changed and impacted biodiversity and ecosystems more rapidly and extensively than in any comparable period of time in history. All businesses, irrespective of their size, sector and location, depend, and consequently have an impact, on biodiversity and ecosystems. This is especially apparent for those who need access to, or convert, areas of biodiversity value: agriculture, food and drink, extractives, forestry and infrastructure are all examples of such sectors.
