Biodiversity sustains the operation of the ecosystems for which we depend on for food, drinking water, health and leisure, climate regulation and protection against natural disasters. Its loss impacts the capacity of the ecosystems to provide essential contributions for human wellbeing and businesses. Companies that are aware in advance of the need for measuring their impact and their dependence on environmental contributions and that have clear strategies for using them in optimum manner have a competitive advantage over the others. With that considered working group of Biodiversity and Biotechnology proposes to deal with the themes related to biodiversity and biotechnology and assist the companies in benefiting from new market opportunities and in minimizing their risks resulting from the use of biodiversity and access to genetic heritage. CTBio also monitors and participates in the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CDB) and Federal Government and civil society forums, as well as the Genetic Heritage Management Council (CGEN).
