The high-level dialogue will reflect on how a transformative GBF can help accelerate action by business towards a nature positive future. We will provide inspiring examples by business and discuss how policymakers can provide a supportive enabling environment for business. The session is co-hosted by the Capitals Coalition and UNEP-WCMC, in collaboration with Business for Nature (BfN).
The aim of this session is to inspire businesses, policymakers and conservation organizations on what is needed for the post-2020 global biodiversity framework to accelerate business action with positive outcomes for nature. The session will discuss the reflections and suggestions from BfN and its partners to improve GBF draft 1. We will explore how policymakers can provide a supportive enabling environment for business that will help delivering positive outcomes for nature and people.
Opening remarks will be provided by both Eva Zabey (Executive Director, Business for Nature) and Elizabeth Mrema (Executive Director, CBD/tbc). Two business representatives will share examples of inspiring commitments and actions and provide suggestions how to strengthen the draft Global Biodiversity Framework. Furthermore, reflections will be shared by a government representative and by Martin Lok (Executive Director, Capitals Coalition and member of the BfN’s Coordination Group).
