Commercial activities, from resource extraction to agriculture, contribute substantially to the ongoing destruction of nature. At the same time, the decline and irreversible loss of biodiversity leads to significant business risks. An increasing number of companies and the financial sector are therefore implementing strategies to reduce both their risks and negative impacts on nature. In doing so, they encounter data gaps, vague metrics, and a lack of coherent and effective regulatory frameworks and regulation. It is becoming ever more evident that a fundamental transformation of the relationship between business and nature is indisputable.
The conference, which is jointly organized by the German science organizations listed below, takes place one week prior to the 15th meeting of the Parties to the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD COP15) in Montreal, which aims to adopt a new policy framework for biodiversity. Our goal is to send a strong signal to Montreal that successful, nature-positive business is possible and that leading representatives of the foremost German natural and economic science community intend to break new ground to jointly remove key obstacles.
With kind regards,
The Organization team
