About us

This information hub builds upon the legacy of two collaborations that played a key role in developing best practice in the mitigation hierarchy, and especially biodiversity offsetting and other ecological compensation approaches – namely, the Business and Biodiversity Offsets Programme (BBOP) over a 15 year period, and more latterly, the Science for Nature and People Partnership Compensatory Conservation working group.

We strive to continue aspects of the ground-breaking work made by these alliances, and maintain the momentum generated in aligning business, governments, environmental professionals and researchers to achieve co-developed solutions to pressing environmental challenges.

To do this, we will act as a central repository of information on the science behind and practice of the mitigation hierarchy, and especially its final step – biodiversity offsetting or ecological compensation.

Through this forum, we will facilitate and encourage engagement among stakeholders, via online and in-person events, so that this is a truly global community of practice, drawing on the extraordinary knowledge and varied experiences of you all.
