Assessing our activities for potential biodiversity risks.
Biodiversity — the variety of terrestrial and marine plant and animal species — is important to maintaining ecosystem health and human well-being. The number of species considered to be at-risk or threatened and protected areas established to conserve habitats may be affected by physical climate-related risks as some regions experience changes in temperature and precipitation patterns. We work to understand and mitigate our potential impact on biodiversity for global operations located across a diverse set of ecosystems. Each business unit and major project is responsible for understanding and managing local biodiversity risks and potential cumulative effects through the life cycle of our assets.
