May 22nd – International Day of Biodiversity

After a few weeks of silence, may I get back to write on an important day regarding the issues I try to promote i.e. Biodiversity.

As you may have heard in your countries on May 22nd was the International Day of Biodiversity. This year the highlight was on Islands ecosystems. On this purpose, the CBD Secretariat published a booklet detailing the commitments developed through the Global Islands Partnership with examples of visionary commitments and initiatives. It is worth reading about these initiatives in Micronesia, Caribbean, Mauritius, Madagascar, etc. Read more here.

However, this day was also a moment during which you, your organisation could talk about your commitments towards biodiversity. Symrise communicated about their commitments towards ethical sourcing of biodiversity. Read more here on Symrise strategic commitments. Symrise Aromas e Fragrancias Ltda is a UEBT member since 2012.
