30 November - 1 December 2021
Business leaders and policymakers will meet on 30 November and 1 December at the 2021 European Business and Nature Summit - a high-level political and technical forum - to capitalise on the growing awareness that businesses impact and depend on nature and the ecosystem services it provides. They will aim to mobilise the business community and strengthen the European "Business for Biodiversity movement" called upon by the EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030.
