Our Work

The Business and Biodiversity Offsets Programme (BBOP) is a recognized leader in the field of biodiversity off­sets.  Our vision is a future in which the mitigation hierarchy is rigorously applied worldwide to a high standard by projects in as many sectors as possible, to achieve no net loss and preferably a net gain of biodiversity including, where appropriate, the use of biodiversity offsets.

We are an international partnership of some 80 leading compa­nies, government agencies, financial institutions, conser­vation organizations and experts who have developed a set of Principles and a Standard for best practice bio­diversity offsets through on-the-ground pilot project experiences



BBOP's priorities for our work through 2016 include:

  1. Improve the Standard and associated tools;
  2. Expand the Community of Practice to reach beyond BBOP membership;
  3. Build capacity through training of professionals;
  4. Mainstream no net loss of biodiversity into policy and practice, and;
  5. Research on best practice on emerging issues.
