We classify utilities, mining & metals, and paper & forest products as sectors with primarily direct impacts on biodiversity as the majority of their operations happen on owned or directly managed assets.
- Biodiversity is not a new topic in mining, utilities, and paper & forest products but its importance is growing
- There are already established and relatively strong practices to address biodiversity loss including site level monitoring & impact assessments
- Reporting is still in its infancy regarding a company’s impacts, risks, dependencies, and opportunities
- More work is needed to make biodiversity reporting less qualitative and more concrete and quantitative
