Nature is rising quickly on the business agenda, following a similar, but rapidly increased, trajectory as climate. With the adoption of the Global Biodiversity Framework—nature’s version of the Paris Agreement—expectations of business from investors, stakeholders, and regulators are skyrocketing, as is the development of the standards and frameworks which guide corporate action. This webinar will include background information and context about major developments in the nature space—including steps companies are taking to understand and assess their relationship to nature. Join us to learn more about the many initiatives in nature and how others are taking and planning action to address nature impacts. Hosted on the International Day for Biological Diversity, this webinar will feature speakers from The Estée Lauder Companies to share lessons learned and key takeaways from their nature journey and by Business for Nature with an overview of global developments and a call to action for all companies.
BSR encourages our members to sign up to the “Nature is Everyone’s Business” Call to Action, and join over 1,000 businesses from around the world who are calling for ambitious and collective action for nature. Also, you can find out more about how to Assess, Commit, Transform and Disclose, High-level Business Actions on Nature—Business For Nature.
