Partner Events

Bloom 23

Make the most out of your time in San Jose by participating in our partner events. Coordinated by leading organizations advancing strategies to protect and regenerate nature, these events delve deeper into a range of topics that build on the Bloom 23 program. 

Organization: Impact Finance Center

Meeting title: U.S. Climate Forest Funders Workshop

Date and time: 9:00 am - 2:00 pm, Thursday, October 24

Increasing numbers of wildfires, floods, and droughts in the U.S. result in loss of life, economic harm, and destruction to our natural systems. Equitable nature-based solutions that sequester carbon, increase resilience, and mitigate climate that provide opportunities for high-quality jobs and economic opportunities are critical pieces of the puzzle.

This meeting is for foundations, corporations, family offices, and donors who want to a) increase funding, b) coordinate funding, and c) explore intersections of climate and equity, specifically around topics of climate resilience, climate mitigation, forest management, environmental justice, and environmental health. 


Climate Forest Funders

Organization: Impact Finance Center 

Meeting title: 2024 GreenBiz + IFC Nature-Based Solutions Cohort

Date and time: 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm, Tuesday, October 24

The regulatory, shareholder, and budget tensions have never been greater for companies. With the passage of increased environmental, social, governance (ESG) regulations, ESG is quickly transitioning from an optional marketing strategy to a requirement. One strategy for companies to meet their compliance goals is to use nature-based solutions, interventions that use nature, and the natural functions of healthy ecosystems to tackle pressing challenges. Those corporations that determine how to finance these solutions in an aligned way will have a competitive advantage over others while improving the lives of their workforce, communities, and our environment.

With the success of the piloted Corporate Climate Equity Cohort, GreenBiz and Impact Finance Center are launching the Nature-Based Solutions Cohort to address this tension. This course will introduce participants to the power of full-spectrum capital and provide an opportunity for participants to develop solutions for their company’s ESG challenges that also reduce expenses and/or increase revenue.


Nature Based Solutions session

Organization: Nature4Climate

Meeting title: Celebrating the launch of our Nature Tech Market report

Date: Tuesday, October 24 at 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm, Tuesday

We need to scale technologies that are addressing severe environmental challenges, such as climate change and biodiversity loss, as well as those accelerating nature-based climate solutions. The nature tech market is growing out of the need to rapidly scale solutions that address these challenges, but where should investors look for opportunities and what are the current trends? 

Nature4Climate, in partnership with the MRV Collective and Serena, are releasing a third report that will look at the size of the market, categorize investment stages and present expert contributors' opinion on nature tech's emerging trends. 

The report will answer questions such as whether nature tech will be able to support the rising need for value chain transparency and monitoring brought about by the incoming wave of disclosure regulations such as the TNFD, what impact the advances in MRV are having, and if tech can respond to the needs of the Global South local communities small holders. 

Don't miss the opportunity to network with nature tech entrepreneurs, investors and corporate sustainability leaders at the launch of the report.
