Where Will the Nature-Positive Business Journey Lead?
DATE/TIME: June 13, 8 am- 9 am PST / 11 am-12 pm EST
Biodiversity is on track to becoming sustainability’s hottest topic of the year. Following the adoption of the Global Biodiversity Framework at COP15 in December, a growing number of companies and financial institutions are working to understand their biodiversity risks and are incorporating actions to halt and reverse nature loss into their sustainability strategies. Becoming “nature positive” is emerging as the latest, and perhaps to date loftiest, business aspiration.
What would it mean for a company to become truly nature-positive, which opportunities does it present, and is it possible to achieve within the global economy’s constraints? On the other hand, what implications will a company’s supply chain and operations face if it ignores its biodiversity risks and dependencies?
Join the conversation to understand what’s behind the biodiversity movement and how your company can respond to this new business imperative.
Topics will include:
- Why becoming nature-positive is a collective journey rather than an ESG check-box
- What tools, resources and frameworks your company can leverage to guide its biodiversity strategy and investments
- How you can effectively communicate this critical focus area to key stakeholders
