How companies can contribute to a nature-positive future

 Registration is closed for this event
The Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) charts a new course for our society’s relationship with nature, with business action critical to addressing the climate and nature crises. A nature-positive and net-zero future cannot be attained without a rapid transformation of our socio-economic systems. A sectoral approach is needed to address the specific impact that different parts of the economy have on nature and biodiversity, and to seize sector-specific commercial opportunities in the transition.

How companies can contribute to a nature-positive future
Business for Nature, the World Economic Forum and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development will launch twelve sector-specific overviews. These overviews will outline the key impacts and dependencies, and priority actions companies can take to contribute towards a nature-positive economy by 2030. Join our event where we discuss the tangible steps businesses across different sectors can take to contribute to a nature-positive economy by 2030.
