CDP’s Expansion to Biodiversity: The Latest Corporate ESG Challenge – Webinar Organized by denkstatt and CDP

As part of its new strategy, CDP now focuses on biodiversity – a topic that is also being prioritized by GRI. When the new GRI Biodiversity Standard publishes in mid-2023, it will aim to set the global best practice for reporting on biodiversity and companies need to be ready for it.

Biodiversity is going to be the “new hot topic” and will be dealt with to the same extent as climate change. However, while the issue of climate is a maturing topic, biodiversity is still poorly understood, and is, in fact, more complex. As an accredited CDP partner, denkstatt will demonstrate what lies ahead in terms of biodiversity reporting and will elaborate on what companies can do to get started in integrating biodiversity into their corporate sustainability management.

Agenda:

  • CDP’s trends in expanding environmental transparency
  • Upcoming biodiversity reporting requirements
  • Key factors for successful biodiversity management with practical examples from denkstatt’s work across multiple sectors.
