The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) will participate actively in various sessions at the European Business Nature Summit 2022, which will take place on October 18 & 19 in Brussels.
In 2022, the international community will reach important milestones expected to shift how businesses report on and respond to risks relating to nature and biodiversity loss, by creating robust frameworks to steer the global financial system in a nature positive direction. The European Business Nature Summit (EBNS) will strengthen the European "Business for Biodiversity movement" and help the business community shape and prepare for these imminent changes.
The EBNS is an initiative of the EU Business @ Biodiversity Platform of the European Commission in collaboration with the Business for Biodiversity Platform Ireland, and supported by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, Business for Nature and other European and national business organisations and institutional business networks.
WCS will participate and speak in several EBNS sessions, including:
- 18th Oct. 12:00 - 13:30 CET: Exploring new data technologies to manage nature risks and opportunities across supply chains, with Dr. Hugo Rainey, Senior Advisor, Business & Conservation, WCS
- 19th Oct. 09:30 - 11:00 CET: Tackling the twin crises of biodiversity loss and climate change together, with Mr. Joe Walston, Executive Vice President, Global Conservation Program, WCS
- 19th Oct. 11.30 - 13.00 CET: Measuring what counts: targeting business steps for nature positive, with Dr. Kendall Jones, Conservation Planning Lead, WCS
