Net Zero & Nature Positive Theatre (Keynote)

The Just Transition Opportunity: Redefining Business Leadership and Value for the Good of All

Day 1 : 12:05 – 12:35

While corporate demand to support nature conservation and restoration is surging, existing models for achieving this are limited, and there is often a mismatch between funding, project quality and scale, and impact duration.

This session will showcase the Rimba Collective, a conservation financing model that is scalable, able to accommodate the shared responsibilities among different tiers of companies, and also delivers for individual companies’ sustainability goals. This innovative approach integrates robust nature-based solutions and high-quality forest protection effort, with delivering impacts for people in local communities.


  • How can industry leaders redefine their strategy to deliver their climate and nature goals through credible and scalable collective action?
  • How can companies integrate their climate and nature goals to their supply chain decisions, and deliver long-term positive impacts?

Post-event actions:

  • Gain insights on how companies can amplify their sustainability strategies and efforts by investing in robust nature-based solutions to achieve a 1.5C pathway.

My Sustainability Goals for 2023:

Hong Kong has a unique opportunity to lead the region in advancing nature-based solutions for climate change mitigation and adaptation. As a global financial center, Hong Kong can mobilize capital and expertise to support forest conservation and restoration projects across Asia. Financial actors in Hong Kong should set ambitious sustainability goals that demonstrate its commitment to the global efforts to halt and reverse deforestation.
