Biodiversity Enhancement

As the ongoing climate emergency and unbridled human activity continues to have a direct, catastrophic impact on biodiversity, the destruction of habitat and environmental degradation are creating the perfect conditions for diseases like COVID-19 to emerge, and in turn, accelerated, irreversible climate change. Successful management of the world’s biodiversity and natural capital is of critical importance to both the planet, people and business. Reuters Events has created a report that looks into the latest innovations, tangible strategies and environmentally minded investments on how businesses are putting natural capital and biodiversity at the heart of their sustainable business model. It includes expert insights from executives at Mars Wrigley, Danone North America, UNEP WCMC, Chipotle, Kering and Natura & Co. Key topics include: Measuring impact on nature with effective metrics; exploring the central role of nature in regenerative programmes; standardised target and frameworks for nature; protecting communities and fighting for environmental justice.
