Biodiversity indicators for extractive companies

The study reviewed existing and emerging guidance and approaches to indicator development, and drew on interviews with eleven companies. The preliminary results of the study were discussed with more than 50 representatives from industry and other interested organisations at the annual Proteus meeting in 2017.

The study found that drivers for indicator development vary between site and corporate levels, with clear implications for ensuring a range of indicators are available and fit for purpose to suit the range of needs of stakeholders. Local regulations, investor interest and monitoring compliance against internal standards were all identified, among others, as key drivers for biodiversity monitoring.
