The preservation of biodiversity deserves the best attention from all agents, namely from economic agents.
Banco Espírito Santo was the first Portuguese company to sign the Statement of Commitment to Biodiversity - Business & Biodiversity, placing its skills as a provider of financial services at the service of nature conservation.
The strategy on Biodiversity is also based in field initiatives, for example:
Partnership with Herdade da Poupa, which aims to preserve endangered species, reforestation and the protection of habitats with autochthonous species of the flora of the region. Support of Faia Brava, which engages in nature conservation and awareness raising initiatives.
The objective is to reward and support innovative initiatives and projects in the fields of research, conservation and management of biological diversity in Portugal; the largest prize of its kind in Portugal.
