Company Profile

Biodiversity is the term given to the variety and variability among living organisms from all sources, and the ecological systems of which they are a part. This diversity, more than often refers only to the wide variety of plants, animals and microorganisms, but actually includes, also the genetic differences within each species and also ecosystem diversity. Biodiversity is our wealth, and a vital means of sustenance, therefore, it is absolutely imperative to understand that this diversity must be conserved as a critically important attribute of nature. The concept arose at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, where world leaders agreed on a comprehensive strategy for "sustainable development". One of the key agreements was the Convention on Biological Diversity which was signed by vast majority of the world's governments who swore commitments for maintaining the world's ecological foundations as the business of economic development proceeds. The Convention establishes three main goals: (i) the conservation of biological diversity, (ii) the sustainable use of its components and (iii) the fair and equitable sharing of the benefits from the use of genetic resources.
