Nature and biodiversity rose rapidly up the global agenda in 2022, with COP27 and COP15 cementing nature loss as a dual imperative alongside climate change. Corporates are increasingly under scrutiny, with nature following the trajectory of climate as it becomes recognized as a critical political, regulatory and reputational issue for businesses and financial institutions.
Business-critical stakeholders are now converging on where to act, and how, leading to an emerging benchmark for credible corporate action on nature. The launch this year of Science-based targets for Nature and the Task Force for Nature-Related Financial Disclosure framework will give market actors the tools they need to assess a company’s engagement with this critical issue.
Join major businesses, financial institutions and the NGOs helping them take effective action to understand:
- What did COP27 and COP15 mean for expectations regarding nature?
- What can we expect to see in 2023? How will stakeholder expectations continue to evolve?
- How can companies get ahead of the risk and opportunity posed by the transition to a nature positive economy?
- What are no regret actions all businesses and financial institutions can take now?
- What have companies already taking action on nature learnt along the way, and what challenges have they encountered?
Our panel will comprise:
- Andy Howard, Global Head of Sustainable Investment, Schroders
- Rob Cameron, Vice President Global Head of Public Affairs and ESG Engagement, Nestlé
- Lucy Holmes, Senior Director, Blue Finance, WWF
- Tom Williams, Senior Director, Nature Action, WBCSD
