Since 2012, IPÊ has been expanding its research area with business partners, aiming to understand the impacts of their practices on ecosystems. Thus, between 2012 and 2014, it conducted analyses of the production chain of Danoninho, a product of the French company Danone, and also developed studies on water and coffee in the Cerrado for the manufacturer Nespresso. The initiative between the Institute and the companies looks at the relationship of the companies’ businesses with ecosystem services, in other words, with the benefits that human beings obtain from ecosystems. The goal is to understand how changes in the environment (climate change, deforestation, water scarcity) directly impact production and how business production impacts ecosystem services and biodiversity. Thus, it is possible to detect the challenges and act more objectively for the conservation of natural resources and the provision of ecosystem services, on which companies are dependent to maintain their activities. The surveys are carried out using innovative technology for biodiversity analysis, which integrates DNA sequencers and can assess the quality of ecosystems more accurately.
