Commitment to biodiversity
At Fragàncies del Montseny we are motivated by a double commitment:
- A commitment to the conservation of biodiversity
- A commitment to contribute to the health and wellbeing of people.
All the actions that we carry out are conceived from this responsibility.
Biodiversity refers to the amount and variety of living organisms that exist on the planet and the relationships that are established between them. It plays a vital ecological role in the whole system since human beings depend on biological biodiversity for their survival.
Biodiversity offers direct benefits, like medicinal and aromatic plants, and indirect benefits through interactions and feedback between the people and the organisms that live in the ecosystem.
Fragàncies del Montseny sees biodiversity as the central concept of life on earth and that is the reason why its philosophy focuses on being committed to the conservation of biodiversity, for the benefit of society and as an integral part of the development process.
Biodiversity’s conservation includes the sustainability of its actions and projects, ensuring that the sustainable use is one that does not interfere with the ecological integrity of any living being, nor with its ecosystem and, at the same time, allows its own development.
Biodiversity’s conservation should be the responsibility of private and public institutions and bodies, as well as the responsibility of us all.
And you, are you already committed to biodiversity’s conservation?
