The FI question of the France Invest ESG Reporting Framework focuses on the commitment and effectiveness of actions taken by a company in response to the impact of its activities on biodiversity in key areas.

1. How to answer this question ?

To answer, a company must first verify if environmental assessments have been conducted specifically for the biodiversity areas affected by its operations. If assessments have been made, it should specify whether they led to the implementation of concrete measures to reduce the negative impact. The answer is “Yes” if actions have been taken based on the conclusions of these assessments. Otherwise, or if no assessment has been conducted, the answer will be “No”.

2. Why is it important ?

This indicator is crucial as it measures the effectiveness of measures taken to protect vital ecosystems. It demonstrates a company’s commitment to environmental sustainability and its willingness to take science-based actions to mitigate its ecological impact.

3. Examples :

– Example A: “Following a biodiversity impact assessment conducted by an external consultant, our company implemented a reforestation program to restore a natural habitat damaged by our activities.”

– Example B: “We conducted a biodiversity impact study which revealed minimal negative impact. However, to prevent any future damage, we have limited access to certain sensitive areas and strengthened our environmental monitoring procedures.”

The goal is to ensure that companies not only measure their impact but also act proactively to reduce their ecological footprint and contribute positively to biodiversity conservation.
