Nature Positive: what if businesses not only minimised their impact but also enhanced ecosystems?
There is a new worldview gathering pace among leaders, conservationists and responsible businesses alike: nature positive. This questions, what if our economic activities not only minimise and remove impact, but also restore ecosystems?
Nature Positive Business
With Earth day the following week, webinar looked at what "nature positive" means and why so many governments and businesses are pinning it as their next big goal.
Many businesses have established a plan to hit net zero - and even to become climate neutral - but is neutrality even enough? Progressive businesses are now showing that they are serious about saving the planet, by going beyond reducing or offsetting their impact - by actively helping to restore and protect ecosystems and species for the future.
This is an ideal episode if you or your business are trying to go beyond carbon reduction, or carbon neutral, and want to help address the climate and biodiversity crises simultaneously. The webinar will be suitable for businesses of all scales and also for individuals who want to learn more about what drives and defines 'nature positive'.
