Ecosystem services and biodiversity are normally associated with the environmental sciences, but they also underpin a wide range of business activities. At the same time, there are also concerns that many companies ignore the damaging impact their operations can, and do, have on ecosystem services and biodiversity. This paper outlines some of the features of ecosystem services and biodiversity, provides four cameo cases of how three major companies, namely Unilever, Nestlé and Dow Chemical Company, and one joint international association, PIECA and IOGP, are publicly communicating their approaches to ecosystem services and biodiversity and offers some concluding reflections on two sets of the wider issues, namely shared value and equity and measurement and valuation.
