Building Integrated Policies for the PlanetWe Mean Business Coalition and Business for Nature
Addressing nature and climate together is an imperative to build an equitable, nature-positive and net-zero future. We cannot contain global warming to 1.5°C without addressing nature loss, and we cannot reverse the loss of nature without a stable climate. A recent report authored by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) supported by 50 of the world’s leading scientists, outlined this interconnection and identified actions to simultaneously fight the climate and nature crises. Businesses are starting to take a more integrated approach, but to accelerate action, coherence and aligned policies on nature and climate are needed.
