Join our Digital Dialogue: How New Legislation Can Help Preserve Biodiversity & What This Means for Businesses

For many companies, the environmental and social impact of their supply chains is significantly higher than the impact of their operational business. As of 2023, the German Supply Chain Sourcing Act and the EU Code of Conduct for Responsible Business and Marketing Practices will require companies to take responsibility for their supply chains. Our UBi (Business & Biodiversity) project Digital Dialogue looks into one key question: How can companies use this as a chance to rethink their supply chains from a biodiversity perspective and what is the added value for them?

Supply chains that focus on biodiversity are more resilient to crises and cause less emissions. A strong sustainable profile that is informed by a biodiversity perspective helps companies tick many boxes at once: meet growing regulatory demands, strengthen their employer brand, establish a safer standing in dynamic times, and build solid relationships with suppliers, ensuring resilient and transparent supply chains. Through carrying out biodiversity checks, companies can identify milestones for adaptation in their supply chains and accelerate transformation.

During the two-hour Digital Dialogue, businesses, business associations, policymakers, researchers, civil society representatives, and other relevant actors are invited to discuss the implications that new legislative pieces will have on standards, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), and the transformation pathways for companies.
