Keidanren (Japan Business Federation) and the Keidanren Committee on Nature Conservation issued the "Initiative based on the Declaration of Biodiversity by Keidanren", which is a compilation of ambitious action policies for and specific activities on biodiversity taken by member companies and organizations, taking advantage of each of their respective strengths. This "Initiative" will play an instrumental role in increasing the depth and breadth of actions on biodiversity taken by the Japanese business community, and contribute to enhance understanding of the actions within and outside the business community.

Keidanren (Japan Business Federation) and the Keidanren Committee on Nature Conservation have made efforts to mainstream biodiversity in the Japanese business community including the formulation of "Declaration of Biodiversity by Keidanren and Action Policy" in March 2009 prior to the adoption of the "Aichi Biodiversity Targets", and its revision in October 2018 in response to overall trends such as the adoption of the SDGs.
