Can Re-greening the Planet Make Commercial Sense?

Natural systems – forests, grasslands, and wetlands – can deliver over a third of the mitigation needed to meet the Paris Agreement’s 2 °C target, a critical biological bridge in the next two decades. Growth in demand for natural resources will put unprecedented pressure on our planet, but it also brings opportunity for economic growth and value creation. Emerging analysis points to a wealth of opportunities offered by our lands, indicating that a substantial portion of the activities needed to deliver climate mitigation are commercially viable without a carbon price or climate policy. Hear from The Nature Conservancy Managing Director Justin Adams on how "regreening the planet" is both a carbon reduction strategy on a massive scale, and a social and economic imperative.
