Recent data shows that biodiversity is declining at a rate unseen in human history. Current extinction rates are 1,000 times higher than natural background rates, with models suggesting future rates of extinction are likely to be 10,000 times higher. These rates are unsustainable for the net-zero, nature-positive world that we want and pose significant biodiversity-related risks to businesses. Ecological risks on operations, liability, regulatory, reputational, market and financial risks are just some of the difficulties businesses face without prioritizing greater environmental responsibility.
In this webinar, we’ll take a look at how businesses are navigating these risks to build and scale a more nature-positive future. We’ll bring together key stakeholders to discuss the challenges of mitigating biodiversity loss and the opportunities of nature-based solutions in the lead-up to the UN Biodiversity Conference (COP15) held later this year in Canada.
