In this high-level and interactive event business leaders will…
- Reflect on the current Covid-19 crisis and the lessons learnt in the context of the planetary crisis.
- Explore how collective action is essential to building greater resilience.
- Hear from companies that are including nature in their decision-making and accelerating progress towards a more sustainable future.
On June 15, FIBS’ international partners Business for Nature and WBCSD – alongside the World Economic Forum, ICC, UN Global Compact and the IUCN – are hosting the first major global leadership event to discuss nature and its vital role in building a resilient future in a post-coronavirus world.
The virtual event will be hosted by Paul Polman, Co-founder and Chair of IMAGINE and Tian Wei, a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader and news anchor. We are bringing together inspiring business and world leaders to explore why making nature part of decision-making is critical to becoming a future-fit business.
This conversation is timely and necessary. Healthy societies, resilient economies and thriving businesses rely on nature. Yet, more than half of the world’s total GDP – a total of $44 trillion of economic value – is at risk from nature loss (World Economic Forum, 2020).
Collective leadership is needed to reverse nature loss in this decade.
Confirmed speakers include: Thomas Buberl, CEO Axa, Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary UNFCCC, Emmanuel Faber, CEO Danone, Alan Jope, CEO Unilever, Shinta W. Kamdani, CEO Sintesa Group, Roberto Marques, CEO Natura&Co, Elizabeth Mrema, Executive Secretary UN CBD
