English term or phrase:private profitability
There is increasing recognition that protecting biodiversity can also be beneficial for individual companies. This is reflected by the growing attention paid to pro-biodiversity-businesses (PBBs), i.e. commercial enterprises (generally SMEs) that generates positive financial returns based on activities that conserve biodiversity, use biological resources sustainably, and share the benefits arising from this use equitably (IUCN 2008). These enterprises contribute to biodiversity conservation through their sector-specific core business which is usually highly dependent on biodiversity (Dickson et al. 2007). The development of such businesses reflects a growing recognition of the commercial potential to conserve biodiversity in both the environmental and business communities.Investing in pro-biodiversity commercial activities is based on identifying and targeting sectors where private profitability of economic activities depends directly on the health of ecosystems (e.g. ecotourism ventures).
