Global Business of Biodiversity

There's a useful event coming up in July at Excel in London, looking at the ways that businesses can more effectively engage with the business of making biodiversity happen. I'm chairing a session that EcoSapiens people might find interesting:

New Models for Business – Biomimicry, Innovation and Inspiration  

Chair:  Andy Middleton, Chairman of the TYF Group

Nature can and has inspired a huge number of innovations within business.  At the same time, increasing scarcity of resources and the need to manage them carefully is encouraging changes in business models and practices that can offer business opportunities.  This session explores a number of new business models that are emerging in response to the natural resource crisis with which we are faced.  In it business transformation and biomimicry experts explain, using examples from companies such as AkzoNobel, Nike and InterfaceFlor, how learning from nature can help future proof your business model during these turbulent times.
