What is Global Business’ Role in Landscape Connectivity?

The new report explores collaborations across different sectors to achieve business and ecological goals.

The World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) in collaboration with multinational agribusiness Syngenta has released a report on landscape connectivity. The report makes the business case for supporting connectivity platforms, such as using marginal land in industrial and rural areas, introducing green infrastructure in cities, and promoting spatial planning. From the report:

“Land connectivity initiatives are clearly in the interests of industry stakeholders directly affected by reduced biodiversity, but there are a number of factors that may also motivate others, including better reputation, improved relationships with local communities and stakeholders, and the creation of platforms for engaging with conservation organizations.

Incorporating the private sector voice into existing initiatives will not only have an impact on land use and management practices, but will also bring valuable knowledge and potential partnership opportunities, enhancing connectivity efforts. Businesses can benefit from being in a connected landscape and taking an active role in addressing landscape connectivity.”
