Nature finance: not quite as sure as 'eggs is eggs' - The Nature Positive Hub key takeaways

On June 26th, business leaders, sustainability managers, asset owners, institutional investors, and developers of nature tech or nature-based solutions joined the Nature Positive Hub at the London Climate Action Week. The day’s discussion debated where the private sector should focus efforts to accelerate the transition towards a net-zero, nature-positive future. The participants also explored compelling business cases for nature, key barriers hindering progress, as well as potential strategies to surmount these obstacles. Here are some of our key takeaways from each session.

New paper: "The Principles of Natural Climate Solutions"

Natural Climate Solutions (NCS) contribute to short- and long-term climate change mitigation, offering essential benefits for biodiversity and communities.

Published in the journal Nature Communications, it provides a framework for effective action.
