OUR MEMBERS

The members of OBC – small and large companies or associations – all share a conviction: the emergence of biodiversity certificates and an associated market are essential to have a real positive impact on the conservation and regeneration of biodiversity. Find their testimonials here.

aDryada

aDryada's ambition has always been to find ways to finance biodiversity protection and restoration. That's why we co-created OBC: to build a mechanism that enables a local and accurate valuation of positive impacts on biodiversity

Le Printemps des Terres

Accelerating the financing of biodiversity actions requires a support tool for decision, which is why OBC is essential.

Ardian

Ardian aims to be a world leading investor in nature restoration projects. High-quality carbon credits have been so far one of the only available tools to finance such projects, which can have a strong positive impact on biodiversity. We are convinced that biodiversity certificates will be an additional tool in the future, if it is based on a methodology with strong scientific basis, and if it is easy to use for companies. We feel that the project led by OBC meets these two criteria. We are extremely glad to be a member of the OBC and to contribute to building the certificates framework and the basis for an associated market.

Atibt

ATIBT, the International Tropical Timber Technical Association, works to promote the sustainable management of tropical forests and a healthy economy that fosters social development. Our certified forest manager members implement sustainable forest management measures, thereby helping to maintain biodiversity. We are contributing to the development of biodiversity certificates as a means of supporting this modelfor preserving tropical forests.

Biota

Biota is a biodiversity project operator that offers integrated project management to its clients, th help them commit to biodiversity and climate within their territories. Biota joined the OBC to contribute to a participatory, innovative and demanding initiative for the valorization of projects useful for biodiversity.

Bouygues

For more than a year, we have developed our internal expertise to identify the most appropriate carbon neutrality contribution strategy. The mono-indicator approach presents its limitations and the OBC links two inseparable topics: contributing to the life and ecosystem restoration while contributing to the increase of sustainable natural carbon sinks

EcoAct

EcoAct strongly advocates for the need to channel financial flows towards biodiversity projects in alignment with the goals of the Global Biodiversity Framework. With more than 15 years of experience in developing methodologies and climate-benefits projects, and a strong understanding of the nature-based solutions market challenges and opportunities, we are pleased to join the OBC to participate to the development of a robust framework and support the global effort on biodiversity preservation and restoration

Ecotree

EcoTree carries out restoration projects of natural ecosystems in Europe and enables the contribution of companies and individuals to Nature-based Solutions. We are convinced that the elaboration of a European framework for measuring the positive impact of projects on biodiversity will accelerate the contributions of everyone to ecosystems, in addition to actions to mitigate the impacts of organizations.

Fransylva

Fransylva is the only organization representing forest owners in all their diversity. We joined OBC to value the services provided by sustainable forest management.

Gold Standard

The Gold Standard Foundation was established in 2003 by civil society (WWF, Friends of the Earth, among others) and is today a globally recognised certification body that promotes sustainable development by certifying projects and portfolios of projects that contribute to climate action and the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Through rigorous standards and stakeholder engagement, the Foundation ensures that projects deliver measurable and verified environmental and social benefits, such as emissions reductions, clean energy generation, and improved livelihoods. By mobilising investments and providing technical support, the Foundation plays a crucial role in creating a more sustainable and resilient future for communities worldwide. Gold Standard supports the work of OBC to drive value for biodiversity and is proud to be engaged in this initiative

GoodPlanet

The GoodPlanet Foundation aims at making all stakeholders aware of the current environmental and social issues. It implements projects on the ground to act for the planet and its inhabitants. Our approach has always included the protection of biodiversity. OBC's proposition, of accelerating the protection of ecosystems by valuing practices that contribute to it, is up to the challenge of stopping life erosion by 2030.

Icade

Soils and biodiversity preservation have been a priority for Icade for several years. We believe that the financial valuation of actions in favor of biodiversity will allow for their propagation and, thus, an overall positive impact. That is why we are pleased to participate in OBC and the development of this mechanism of collective interest

Kering

Kering is thrilled to join the Organization for Biodiversity Certificates (OBC), a milestone that underscores our commitment to advancing science-based solutions for biodiversity conservation and restoration. By integrating OBC's rigorous methodologies into our existing initiatives, such as the projects of the Regenerative Fund for Nature, we aim to elevate and demonstrate the impact of our efforts to protect and restore ecosystems

La belle Forêt

By protecting biodiversity, we fight against climate change. The biodiversity certificate mechanism is a promising way to act effectively to fight against its collapse. Let’s build it together.

Pernod Ricard

Pernod Ricard produces and sources more than 100 ingredients (wheat, barley, cane, beets, grapes, agave, botanicals, etc.) from different terroirs around the world. Attentive to natural balances, we are committed to taking care of each terroir and its biodiversity and we believe that a biodiversity index is a good tool for assessing ecosystems' health and promoting regenerating practices

Planete Urgence

Planète Urgence is an association that preserves and restores forests in the most vulnerable areas – Indonesia, Cambodia, Madagascar, Benin, Cameroon, Ecuador, and Peru. Each project aims to generate impacts on 3 levels: biodiversity, community resilience, and climate. Through its involvement in OBC, Planète Urgence wishes to improve its understanding and capacity to measure biodiversity impacts within an ecosystem.

Reforest'Action

Reforest'Action's mission is large-scale terrestrial ecosystem restoration to address environmental challenges, leveraging the multi-functionality of ecosystems for long-term resilience. Biodiversity is one of the most significant impacts. Convinced that companies can drive environmental regeneration, Reforest'Action aims to contribute to their transformation through nature-based solutions. The company mobilizes strengths in regenerative agriculture, carbon projects, and impact measurement. Contributing to the creation of an international biodiversity certificate is the best way to encourage companies to restore biodiversity in their value chain and in other ecosystems.

ReGeneration

Regeneration is a mission-driven company that funds the transition of farms to regenerative agriculture. We have chosen to join OBC to work and share our progress on the biodiversity assessment methodology. We want to see a virtuous consensus around measurement methodologies for companies working on externalities assessment of agricultural systems.

South Pole

Considering the emerging biodiversity market and the recent 30 by 30 target from COP15, there is an urgent need to work toward a common methodology framework to measure, quantify and report biodiversity gains. South Pole is convinced these joint efforts will open doors to conserve important areas for the planet and communities that do not receive climate finance, and help closing the financial gap that exists for nature conservation.

Noé

Noé, as a leading NGO for the conservation of biodiversity in France and internationally for 20 years, is a field actor that will share its expertise and experience with the members of OBC. Our ambition is to see the emergence of demanding systems that will contribute to the 30/30 objective and create new models for sustainably financing the preservation of natural spaces and species diversity, the restoration of areas favorable to life, and the support of all stakeholders (individuals, institutions, companies) in reducing their pressure on nature and reconnecting with it
