The World Economic Forum’s The Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework and What it Means for Business, a white paper published in collaboration with PwC China, introduces the most business-relevant aspects of the draft post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) and key business- and regulatory-driven approaches that will need to be scaled up to achieve its targets.
Biodiversity is declining faster than at any time in human history and the biosphere is being altered to an unparalleled degree, eroding the very foundations of our economies, food security, health and quality of life worldwide. The GBF, to be finalized and adopted in December at COP15 in Montreal, will be the biodiversity equivalent of the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change.
Business has a critical and irreplaceable role to play in delivering the innovation, investment and business models that will be needed to achieve the goals of the GBF, which aims to galvanise urgent and transformative action to halt and reverse biodiversity loss by 2030.
