Why do you support UBI

Federal Agency for Nature Conservation

“Investments in climate protection and the protection of biological diversity are not only good for nature and the climate. They improve the quality of life, they make companies fit for the future. "

With this key message, the Federal Minister for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety, Svenja Schulze, opened this year's dialogue forum of the UBi association platform.

The focus was on the new one "National Strategy on Biodiversity" as well as the international "Post-2020 biodiversity process" and the question of how companies and trade associations can get actively involved. Clear practical examples from pioneering companies showed concrete ways in which the protection of biodiversity can be profitably integrated into corporate structures.

The lively and exciting exchange at the dialogue forum and the participation of over 200 actors from business, politics and science shows that the protection of biological diversity is increasingly perceived as a central task for society as a whole. A task that requires dialogue and networking, but also concrete steps towards biodiversity-friendly economic activity.

That's why we are happy, the Digital dialogue in spring To be able to continue with topic-specific online seminars and to be able to accompany the process of active participation by companies and trade associations in the international commitment process.
