Pippa Howard: The role of business in maintaining biological diversity

Businesses – particularly multinational conglomerates – have a massive impact on biodiversity, via activities such as mining, timber extraction, oil and gas exploration, monster hydropower schemes and landscape-scale conversion of natural habitat for soya and oil palm plantations and other agricultural uses, etc. This talk addresses the role business must play to address biodiversity loss and climate change and what will be expected of business from the Conference of the Parties at the next meeting of the Convention on Biological Diversity.

Pippa Howard is Director, Extractives & Development Infrastructure at Fauna & Flora International. She directs FFI’s engagement with the corporate sector, leading programmes to advise and steer biodiversity management. Pippa brokers collaboration and cooperation between business, government and civil society to address both practical and policy challenges to biodiversity conservation.
