Investing in the transition to a nature positive world through new biodiversity strategy

Investing in the transition to a nature positive world through new biodiversity strategy

03-11-2022 | Webinar

Protecting the Earth’s biodiversity has become as urgent as tackling climate change. Up to one millions species are at risk from unsustainable human development, and it’s not just an ecological threat – half of global GDP is dependent on nature in some way. At the same time, it’s also a massive investment opportunity through a market potentially worth USD 10 trillion in moving to more nature-friendly business practices.
