Nature

Sustainable decisiveness:
From a narrow emphasis on CO2 to a broad focus on nature

Nature is a lifeline on which more than half our global economy depends. Nature provides the air we breathe and the water we drink, ensures the fertility of our soils and is a rich source of inspiration for technology. This is why the major loss of biodiversity we are currently seeing poses such a threat to people and businesses. And this is why companies aiming to be resilient must take sustainable steps forward by anchoring the importance of nature within their corporate strategy. It is the key to making a world of difference together.
