This technical working paper explores potential design principles for the development of scalable voluntary biodiversity credits and discusses the challenges in delivering high integrity positive outcomes.
Many approaches to monitoring great apes exist, but there is no such thing as a ‘best survey method’. Approaches should consider which method is best suited to a given context and question, and based on the resources available.
This study explores trends in the biodiversity commitments of Global Fortune 100 companies and firms which have made recent ‘net impact’ commitments. It reviews challenges to overcome in delivering equitable and positive outcomes and summarizes the key elements required for businesses to achieve nature-positive alignment.
Nature positive is intuitive, appealing and apparently simple. But while the concept may seem simple, achieving it is not. Moving towards nature positive will mean transformative shifts - for companies and the economic systems in which they operate.
Well-designed credit systems could help connect the surge in corporate interest in biodiversity with field-based conservation to unlock new and enhanced funding streams.
Whether a company is aware of its potential nature-related risks or just getting to grips with how it impacts and depends on biodiversity, the success of strategy, targets and actions will rely on the availability and quality of data.
A shared global goal and a new way of thinking about sustainability. Nature positive has set down roots in the business world and is laying out a challenge to those companies that want to lead on sustainability.
Global mining efforts require vast amounts of energy, most of which has historically been derived from fossil fuels such as diesel, heavy oils, and coal. The mining industry recognises it has a critical role to play in limiting...
Protected Areas (PAs) are often the first tool in the conservationist’s tool kit for preserving biodiversity, but they are not always effective. As a result, PA management has undergone a major rethink in recent years.
