Short extract:

This let­ter from a group of con­cerned organ­i­sa­tions and indi­vid­u­als who believe that leg­is­la­tion on bio­di­ver­sity off­set­ting being con­sid­ered by the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion would harm nature and peo­ple, and would give power to those who destroy nature for pri­vate profit. The sig­na­to­ries ask for all plans on off­set­ting to be dropped. To see the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion response please click here.
