Businesses play an important role in projecting our natural environment. All companies can have an impact on biodiversity in the course of their business - because they use natural resources, produce or consume products, own and manage areas of land, or finance other activities that have direct and indirect impacts.

At the same time, a healthy natural environment is important for business as it provides the raw materials and biological services which are essential for a business to produce a return on its investments. Beside being directly dependent on biodiversity for economic operation, as a user of biodiversity, business also has a social responsibility to help conserve it for future generations.
There are plenty of ways that business can help biodiversity in Fingal:
1 Produce a biodiversity action plan for your business.
2 Manage your grounds for wildlife - plant trees, hedgerows, colourful plants and build bird & bat boxes as these will attract a range of wildlife species.
3 Sponsor Fingal’s Nature Education Programme for primary and secondary schools .
4 Sponsor a nature conservation project in Fingal.
5 Become a 'Champion' for a habitat or species at risk in Fingal.
6 Provide expertise such as marketing advice for projects and nature conservation groups in Fingal.
