Biodiversity

Our operations are strongly linked to natural resources and our business plays a key role in tackling biodiversity loss and degradation. We work with nature in a transformative, rather than traditional way. By capitalizing on natural processes, endemic species and local adaptation, we strive to take into account the wider landscape and conservation context.
