BIODIVERSITY FOOTPRINT ASSESSMENT
Our comprehensive biodiversity footprint assessment goes beyond mere observation and delves into every aspect of your company's activities that have an impact on biodiversity, as well as providing an estimated carbon footprint.
By meticulously evaluating these factors, we are able to provide you with a clear understanding of the extent to which your company affects the delicate balance of life on our planet.
WHAT WE WILL DO
We employ statistical modelling methodologies statistical models alongside using the Mean Species Abundance per square kilometer (MSA.km²) metric to give you a biodiversity footprint value.
Dive deep into your business's operations, evaluating all activities that influence biodiversity. This comprehensive assessment considers both positive and negative impacts from your business activities right the way through your supply chain, encompassing factors like land use changes, resource extraction, pollution, and habitat restoration initiatives.
STANDARDS AND METHODOLOGIES
This assessment will help us see how economic activities affect biodiversity. It shows how a company can have a measurable impact on nature. This impact is determined in two steps:
- Tunley will figure out how economic activities contribute to the pressures on biodiversity.
- Followed by looking at how these pressures affect nature and measure it in MSA.km² (Mean Species Abundance per square kilometer). This helps to understand the health of ecosystems and the area they influence.
These Methods adhere to Science Based Targets for Nature and Nature Positive Standards.
THE ASSESSMENT PROCESS
Our assessments align with Science Based Targets for Nature and Nature Positive Goals which enables companies to identify their impact on biodiversity in a quantifiable manner, also enabling companies to reduce their impact. Reducing impact by using the biodiversity footprint as a baseline will enable companies to begin their road to Nature Positive Goals of offsetting impact on biodiversity to conserve our natural world.
BIODIVERSITY IS THE FOUNDATION OF THE GLOBAL ECONOMY
The World Economic Forum (WEF) estimates that over 50% of the world's GDP, equivalent to 44 trillion USD, significantly depends on nature and the services it provides.
KEY DRIVERS OF BIODIVERSITY LOSS
- 01 Habitat Loss
- 02 Climate Change
- 03 Over-Exploitation
- 04 Pollution
- 05 Invasive Species
Habitat loss, degradation, and fragmentation, driven by industrial activities and agriculture, are major drivers of the biodiversity crisis.
The alteration of global climate patterns due to human activities, primarily the emission of greenhouse gases, leads to rising temperatures, changing precipitation patterns, and sea-level rise.
This involves the unsustainable use of resources such as overfishing, illegal hunting, and logging. It depletes populations and disrupts ecosystems, leading to the loss of species and their habitats.
This includes air, water, and soil pollution caused by industrial activities, agricultural runoff, and waste disposal. Pollutants can directly harm species and their habitats, affecting their biodiversity.
Non-native species that are introduced to new environments can out-compete native species, disrupt ecosystems, and cause their decline or extinction.
