COP 15 — the ‘Paris moment for nature’: Is finance on board?
Nature and climate are two sides of the same coin. COP 27 and its biodiversity equivalent COP 15, play important roles in advancing policy responses to the climate and nature crises and providing clarity for the private sector on global goals and pathways for action. The business and financial world’s race towards net-zero emissions will succeed if they race equally fast towards a nature-positive future – and a ‘Paris-like framework’ is pivotal for the public and private sectors to rally behind. The climate crisis cannot be stopped without addressing degradation and loss of nature and biodiversity.
