Measuring biodiversity – how to choose the right metric

Biodiversity is complex, so measuring the impact you are having on it can be tough. Yet as we start the Biodiversity Super Year, it’s becoming increasingly urgent that we can measure our impacts and set targets for biodiversity. The inherent toughness and urgency of this challenge has fuelled a plethora of metrics to help measure different aspects of biodiversity. Which one should a company/government/NGO choose?

The answer to this globally may lie in Kunming, China, at the Congress of Parties of the Convention of Biological Diversity in October this year. In the meantime, The Biodiversity Consultancy has developed and published guidelines on the Biodiversity Extent Condition and Significance (BECS) framework, which underpins many biodiversity metrics relevant to business. BECS makes it easy to choose a metric that balances validity, feasibility and completeness for a particular scenario.
