According to the World Economic Forum, over 50% of the world’s total GDP is dependent upon nature and the loss of biodiversity ranks as one of the top 5 threats humanity will face in the next decade. Many brands are moving towards a 'nature positive production,' with the aim to restore species and ecosystems. Given the interconnectedness of biodiversity loss, climate change, and human rights, many brands are adopting strategies to adopt all three in unison.
In this session we'll assess how leading brands have integrated nature into their climate strategies and broader sourcing practices. We'll take a look at:
- What does a nature positive strategy actually look like in practice?
- How can apparel brands prepare to set SBTs for nature? What do other realistic KPIs look like for biodiversity and what tools exist to monitor and verify impact?
- Where aren’t we seeing enough progress on biodiversity, and how can we overcome the barriers to action?
- How brands with multi-tiered, multinational supply chains can engage supply chain actors and drive genuine impact on-the-ground
