The Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services Committee was created in 2014 to encourage and safeguard biodiversity.

It was also a means by which companies could be more responsible in sourcing agricultural raw materials.

In 2016, the Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services Committee was incorporated into the Horizon Committee. During its existence, the Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services Committee worked with industry leaders, government agencies and NGOs.
