Faced with what the United Nations calls an ‘unprecedented’ decline in biodiversity, businesses are taking action to find solutions to reduce and ultimately reverse human impacts on our ecosystems.
Recent initiatives such as the 2022 Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework, recommendations from the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) and the Nature Positive Initiative aim to offer a path forward with definitions to guide conservation organisations, businesses and financiers towards a net positive impact on nature. But how can businesses put guidance and solutions into practice, and what steps should be taken to set clear goals and find novel solutions for organisations to contribute to a better future for biodiversity and nature?
In this webinar, our expert panel discussed:
• How should businesses define terms like nature zero and nature positive to help them measure and manage progress? • What action brands are already taking to create and articulate their nature strategies, and what lessons can be learned for the future to drive measurable change. • Where and how should companies set targets to effectively address a nature-positive future? • The support needed from government, regulators, finance and other stakeholders to achieve change
