Biodiversity is gaining increasing attention in the business world, and Canadian companies recognize the importance of taking action. However, many are still in the early stages of embracing biodiversity initiatives. In response to this challenge, the UN Global Compact Network Canada is pleased to introduce the Biodiversity Working Group, a collaborative initiative aimed at facilitating corporate biodiversity action and reporting in partnership with WSP.
Canadian businesses are eager to pledge their commitment to biodiversity conservation, including through reporting under the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD). Nevertheless, a significant knowledge gap on how to begin this process exists both globally and locally, posing a key obstacle to effective participation in biodiversity initiatives.
The core objective of this working group is to assist Canadian companies in taking meaningful steps towards biodiversity reporting and action. Our aim is to bridge the knowledge gap by developing practical solutions and guidance for companies looking to lay the internal groundwork for reporting under the TNFD. This working group provides a platform for knowledge exchange, collaborative learning, and the development of actionable strategies.
Who can join?
This working group is exclusively open to the Canadian Participants of the UN Global Compact.
We invite companies of all sizes, representing a wide spectrum of industries, and at varying stages of maturity in the biodiversity topic area to join. It is important to highlight that no prior expertise is required, ensuring a welcoming opportunity for all.
Given the limited capacity of 6-10 Participating Companies, in the event of high interest, priority will be given to ensure a diverse representation across industries during the Participant approval process.
Participation in the Biodiversity Working Group is an opportunity to make a substantial impact on your organization's sustainability efforts. Together, we can address the gaps in biodiversity action and drive meaningful change. Join us in this significant endeavour to assist Canadian businesses on their biodiversity reporting journey.
