Measuring and assessing biodiversity

Are five ants worth more than four elephants? Many people think biodiversity is important, but how important is it and how should it be measured? At RISE, we work to develop, evaluate and apply different methods to measure biodiversity to help companies and businesses see the impact of their actions and what can be improved.

At RISE, we can support you in your work with biodiversity in many different ways, depending on the type of partner you need.

Innovation partner

We help develop and implement new creative solutions that promote biodiversity. We work cross disciplinary and outside of the box to find the next frontier. Prototypes and proposals are demonstrated and tested together with stakeholders.

Examples of what we do as an innovation partner: We can help you develop decision-making and assessment tools, new service design, new business models, new technical solutions (e.g. with AI, digitalization) and new ways of working.

Business partner

We support companies and public actors in integrating biodiversity into governance and value-creating processes. What impact do different products and activities have on biodiversity and how can this be measured and followed up?

Examples of what we do as a business partner:  guide your company to use  Science Based Targets for Nature (SBT-N),  to perform ecological risk analysis  and life cycle analysis,  and to work with environmental goals and Agenda 2030 goals.

Research partner

We conduct research together with universities, colleges, institutes, companies and authorities to better understand how society can meet the challenges of biodiversity in different areas.

Examples of what we do as research partners: International and national research projects.

Livscykelanalys av nöt- & lammköttsproduktion i Sverige

Klimatavtrycket för idisslare är relativt högt, men betande djur som nöt och lamm kan ha andra positiva effekter på miljön såsom biologisk mångfald och inlagring av kol i marken. I detta projekt beräknar vi miljöpåverkan med livsc…

Gröna täta tak, steg 3

Gröna tak utgör alternativa gröna ytor i staden som beroende på utformning kan bidra med en rad olika ekosystemtjänster, t.ex. ökad biologisk mångfald och spridningsvägar, temperatursänkning i samband med värmeböljor och dagvatten…
