We Value Nature training module 2 launched

Dr. Stephanie Hime & Sabina Gordon, Little Blue Research Ltd - 

Across the world, sustainability is being pushed to the forefront of the global agenda. In response, it is vital for the private sector to reflect on its relationship with natural capital, specifically its impacts and dependencies. Doing so will be necessary, not only for protecting our planet and positively contributing to global climate and biodiversity targets, but also in managing the numerous risks and opportunities that businesses are exposed to.

Call for proposals

Background

We Value Nature is an EU Horizon 2020-funded three-year campaign (November 2018 –October 2021) supporting businesses and the natural capital community across Europe with the aim of making valuing nature the new normal for business.

Nadine McCormick, IUCN - 

Many businesses are starting to recognise that the natural capital crisis is a business crisis and they need to better identify, measure, value and prioritise their impacts and dependencies. Recognising the need to value nature is a real and meaningful first step, but it’s only the first step in the natural capital journey.

The coronavirus crisis is changing the world and We Value Nature is adapting to reflect the new reality. Our team is working from home to deliver more training resources online and we are remotely supporting businesses on their journeys towards a sustainable future.

The start of each year sees the publication of three annual business and risk reports: the WEF Global Risk Report, the PwC CEO Survey and the Edelman Trust Barometer. In 2020 these reports confirmed a fact we’ve known for a long time: that the climate and natural capital crisis is a business crisis.

Integration of natural capital in public and private sector decision making for climate resilience and biodiversity - in collaboration with the We Value Nature campaign

Nature is essential to the future of the planet, but natural resources are being used up faster than the Earth can replace them. Through understanding and considering the risks and opportunities created by nature, businesses can make better decisions that benefit themselves, society and the planet as a whole.
