Supporting Good Business Practices

IBAT Screen Capture

UNEP-WCMC has developed a range of tools and information resources to help business identify risk associated with biodiversity, thus supporting avoidance and mitigation strategies for the protection of biodiversity.


UNEP-WCMC plays a key role in the Integrated Biodiversity Assessment Tool (IBAT). The tool is the result of a ground-breaking conservation partnership among BirdLife International, Conservation International, IUCN and UNEP-WCMC. IBAT for Business, a subscription based service was launched in 2010, it facilitates access to information about high priority sites for conservation - namely protected areas and key biodiversity areas - to inform the implementation of corporate biodiversity policies and enhance environmental management systems.
