Businesses and Finance for Biodiversity: Closing the Nature Finance Gap
Over half of the world's GDP, or USD 44 trillion in economic worth, is at moderate or severe risk because of nature loss (World Economic Forum, 2020). At the same time, by 2050, the world needs to close the USD 4.1 trillion financing gap in nature in order to meet global goals (UNEP, 2021). Doing so will require a commitment of $700 billion annually by 2030.
It is therefore clear that all sectors need to be on board and engaged in the making of ambitious commitments to nature financing. In this session, speakers will delineate and explain how their organisations successfully escalate ambitious environmental commitments and claims into positive actions to tackle biodiversity loss and climate change.
