Local Enterprise Companies
The local enterprise company network in Scotland can play a key role in identifying biodiversity-related businesses or market opportunities. You can contribute to protecting Scotland's biodiversity by providing direct support to businesses for biodiversity conservation, or by including biodiversity conservation criteria in your assessment of, or conditions for, grant support.
Businesses can have a major impact on biodiversity, so it is crucial they are aware of the effects they may be causing. You have clear communication channels to businesses, which you can use to promote the business benefits of biodiversity and to encourage businesses to view biodiversity as a key corporate social responsibility.
