Biodiversity is all about retaining the diversity of genetic material, species and ecosystems.

Economy and ecology

Biodiversity is a cornerstone of our economy, food and medicine production, and a natural form of protection against climate change. If we lose these natural resources, we stand to lose a gene pool of immeasurable value.

KLM participates in the national Taskforce on Biodiversity and Natural Resources. The Taskforce is drafting policy recommendations for biodiversity conservation and restoration. The integration of economy and ecology (along the lines of the TEEB-concept, The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity) is at the core of the recommendations.
