Global Biodiversity Decision Support Platform

IBAT is the gateway to information you can trust and tools that you need to make informed decisions about biodiversity risk and to report upon environmental performance.

IBAT Survey

IBAT is currently undergoing a review designed to capture the needs, expectations and wishes of past, current, and potential users of IBAT. This will inform IBAT's future direction and development. Please help us gather information by completing a short (max 20 minute) survey. Take survey

Screening Investments
Identify areas recognised as critical habitat (for example, following IFC’s Performance Standard 6) and categorise projects accurately according to their environmental risk.
Sustainability reporting
Maintain a catalogue of sites and quickly compile portfolio level information on environmental indicators to feed into sustainability reporting frameworks such as GRI.
On-line maps and toolkits
Access on-line maps and toolkits tailored to business needs, offering unprecedented information on protected areas, the location and importance of priority sites for conservation (key biodiversity areas) and threatened species.
