Restoring the balance between biodiversity and economy
We are currently experiencing the 6th mass extinction of life (mass extinction being defined as the loss of a majority of species in a short geological time, caused by a catastrophic natural event). Species are now becoming extinct 100 times faster than in “extinction-free” geological periods.
The IPBES (the equivalent of the IPCC for biodiversity) identifies 5 pressure factors at the source of this crisis: changes in land and sea use, overexploitation of resources, climate change, pollution and invasive alien species. Economic activities contribute directly (or indirectly via their value chain) to these pressures; they can also be the catalyst for new practices that can significantly reduce these pressures, or even restore the living system.
