In the context of China hosting the UN Convention on Biological Diversity in Kunming in October, at which governments are due to agree on a new international framework to tackle biodiversity loss, the destruction and degradation of nature, and the services it provides, presents risks that may outstrip those of climate change. What does this mean for the business community? How can companies align their strategies and operations with biodiversity goals? And from which examples of models and practices can we learn?
AmCham Shanghai would like to invite you to join this free online Zoom session on Thursday, June 17, 2021, from 2:00 to 3:15 pm, where we will examine the economic and public health risks of biodiversity loss and assess the "biodiversity financing gap". The financing gap, estimated to be around over US$ 700 billion per year, cannot be closed by governments alone, so this session will explore the policies and frameworks needed to drive private sector investment into protecting and restoring nature, as well as showcasing some of the best business practices from China and beyond.
