Connecting Nature Enterprise Platform
The Connecting Nature Enterprise Platform is an online marketplace designed to increase awareness of the growing potential of the nature-based economy and to connect the buyers and suppliers of nature-based solutions together.
With nature-based enterprises supplying nature-based solutions across many sectors, GoGreenRoutes is pleased to be involved and support the newly launched NBS for Health and Well-Being Community on the Platform.
At the heart of the Enterprise Platform are communities of practice. Each community is moderated by an industry leader, a kind of enterprise ambassador who will showcase best practice in the sector, raise awareness about the benefits and risks of nature-based solutions and share sector-specific opportunities among community members.
Use the Platform to disseminate opportunities to a global audience.
Post your opportunity in English or in any other language. Share your opportunity with all nature-based enterprises or limit circulation to a specific sector of activity.
If you're looking for inspiration or support, post an open challenge on the platform. You might be looking for fresh ideas about nature-based solutions for a particular site or you may be looking for an answer to a technical question. Whatever your query is - post a challenge here and see if our community can help.
Nature-based enterprises (NBEs) are defined as enterprises that use nature sustainably as a core element of their product/service offering for the planning, delivery and/or stewardship of nature-based solutions. Find a NBE using the Platform's interactive map. Narrow down your search with the county, city and sector filters.
Survey on Challenges and Enablers faced by Nature-Based Enterprises
The Connecting Nature Enterprise Platform supports the growth of the nature-based economy in Europe and beyond. As part of this work, it conducts research on nature-based enterprises, which resulted in the publication of the Nature-Based Enterprises Guidebook. The guidebook helps to clarify what a nature-based enterprise is, how to find skilled and experienced nature-based enterprises and how to stimulate and support the start-up, financing and growth of nature-based enterprises.
The next stage of this research is to investigate the challenges and enablers experienced by organisations, specifically in the NBS for Health & Well-being sector. This will help the Connecting Nature and GoGreenRoutes projects to give recommendations to policymakers on effective support measures. To participate in our survey, click here.
