Messages for Busines from the WCC 2012

 Business presence at Congress was unprecedented. This year the Congress was attended by 6,400 individuals with over one hundred business representatives participating. Business participation was centered on the IUCN-WBCSD Business and Economy Pavilion and the Business and Ecosystem Think Tank, an event focused on real solutions for changing pace on biodiversity and ecosystem services. In addition, over eighty other events on various themes related to business and biodiversity took place during the first four days as part of the Forum.
