Abstract In this paper, we describe the main findings of an exploratory research about corporate commitment to manage biodiversity and ecosystems. The results are based on literature of sustainability approaches and interviews with sustainability representatives of twelve national and international companies in the Netherlands. The empirical results show that companies still use a reactive approach to biodiversity. Biodiversity is getting more attention on the sustainability agenda of the executive board. While external networking with stakeholders is increasing, both in networks and partnerships, creating internal commitment for the corporate responsibility on biodiversity and ecosystems remains challenging.
