Nature underpins our society, providing essential services that support the global economy, human health and well-being. This inherent link underscores the importance of addressing the ongoing decline in biodiversity - a challenge that poses significant risks for businesses. These risks include potential supply chain disruptions, scarcity of raw materials, and increased operational costs.
Recognizing their contribution, businesses have a critical role in halting and reversing our impacts on nature and biodiversity. Nature, of which climate is part, is critical to consider across business sectors and practices. This proactive approach helps the private sector better manage nature-related risks and make the most of opportunities, all while making a significant contribution to the restoration and recovery of biodiversity.
