Getting It Right: Synergising Nature and Net-Zero Strategies

Day 1 - 5th Oct | 14:25 - 15:25

Location: Sustainable Transformation Theatre (Keynote)

Food & Nature


Businesses rely on nature for resources, ecosystem services and healthy societies for their own prosperity and continuity. As nature loss exacerbates due to climate change and human ecosystem destruction, businesses are starting to realise the material risks of nature loss for their long-term success – as well as opportunities for incorporating nature and biodiversity into business strategies to ensure long-term viability of business models, stable supply chains, access to new markets and services, and improved relationships with stakeholders.


  • Nature and climate change are inextricably connected. At COP26, for the first time, nature was placed firmly on the climate agenda, and biodiversity loss recognised as among our top global risks. In the context of global recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a compelling case for businesses to address both crises simultaneously.
  • What are the opportunities and barriers for business to synergise commitments to nature and a net-zero pathway?
  • What are some tools and techniques that businesses can use to assess and minimise adverse impacts on ecosystems? How can businesses support biodiversity and conservation initiatives, and promote greater awareness among employees and stakeholders?
