Biodiversity Footprint Calculator

Kick-off your biodiversity journey and gain immediate quantitative insights into the biodiversity impact arising from your business operations or investment portfolio. Get ready to meet industry standards and regulatory requirements with the Biodiversity Footprint Calculator.

About this product:

The Biodiversity Footprint Calculator allows global investors and corporates to accurately measure the biodiversity impact of their complex economic value chains. Building on our Global Impact Database (GID), the tool is based on standard sector classifications of procurement and investments activities (e.g., NACE, ISIC, GTAP).

The calculator consolidates all biodiversity information into a unified depository. This caters to specific requirements from industry initiatives and regulations such as the TNFD, CSRD and SFDR. For more information see our Biodiversity Knowledge Base and Regulations Knowledge Base. Ultimately, the tool fosters more virtuous corporate decision processes within companies around the world. It works towards a global economy that internalizes planetary boundaries into decision-making.
