April 2012

A fact sheet from a series developed by IPIECA and OGP to demonstrate the oil and gas industry’s present and future contribution to sustainable development. Prepared in advance of the 2012 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20). Biodiversity is central to the effective working of ecosystems and the natural resources they provide – known as ecosystem services. These are crucial to both human well-being and business, both today and in the future.
