Nature & Biodiversity

Whilst the guiding frameworks and reporting landscape continue to evolve, “the urgency of the nature crisis requires businesses to act now and “learn by doing”. We understand that embarking on the journey to determining how a company’s operations intertwine with nature can be daunting. Edge’s Nature & Biodiversity services support clients at any stage of their journey to identify, quantify and act on their interface with nature. We believe that together we can rewrite the narrative, ushering in a new era of corporate responsibility towards nature, and helping to forge a path towards sustainable practices that will safeguard our planet's future.

We’re experiencing a global shift in focus, from a climate crisis to a planetary crisis. Recognising current efforts to reduce emissions will not go far enough to turn global warming around, we’re now looking to nature, specifically how we as a global society can support nature to most effectively play its role in balancing human impacts.  

Our Nature & Biodiversity services support organisation to identify, quantify and strategise its response to the planetary crisis.  From farmers to pharmaceuticals, bankers to builders, nature plays a key role in every organisation’s success. Our role is to support your organisation to understand the extent to which you rely on nature, and how nature may be impacted by your operations, before developing a pathway to progress this relationship through strategy, a roadmap, reporting or industry leadership.    

Our Nature & Biodiversity services support our clients to understand and take accountability for their interface with nature, to enable more fulsome strategies, disclosures and future opportunities.
