UNDP Nature for Life: Business and Finance Day – Session 1

November 11, 2020 , 10:00 am - 11:30 am CST

Streaming on Live 1

ENCORE! Originally aired September 25

Wednesday, November 11 | 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM CST (11:00 AM – 12:30 PM EST)

Duration: 90 min

Description: The drivers of biodiversity loss often come down to economic and market forces. Our current economic system favors short-term gain over long-term stewardship of assets, including nature. This set of sessions identifies opportunities to better align global and national goals to protect, restore and sustainably manage nature, with goals for sustainable economic development. This session also calls upon the financial and business sector to disrupt business-as-usual by placing nature at the center of decision-making, and lays out the path forward to achieving a transformational economy for a better, greener, more just future.

Session 1: Business and Finance

By disrupting business-as-usual, business and finance can invest in a new nature economy, reap long-term benefits and reduce their underlying risks associated with nature loss. Join a power panel of CEOs demonstrating their momentum and policy ambition for nature: transforming nature-destructive industries into nature-positive ones. Over 90 minutes, learn more about how business and finance action can be accelerated through collective action via the “Nature is Everyone’s business” Call to Action and the Finance for Biodiversity Pledge that encourage world leaders and financial institutions to strive for an ambitious Post-2020-Biodiversity Framework.

*Program may start a few minutes before or after the scheduled air time.
*Most programs will be made available on our “On Demand” Page at a later date.
