Business for Nature’s Call to Action is the first time so many businesses have stepped forward with the ambition of influencing discussions in the run-up to delivering a Post 2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.  It follows recent and widespread calls from Conservation, Development and Humanitarian Organizations, Faith Groups, Cities, Indigenous Peoples, and Youth groups for more ambitious action on nature to protect human and planetary health.

Now that the business community is showing such leadership, we’re hoping governments will hear this call and step up their ambition levels in the run-up to Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) COP 15 scheduled to take place in 2021.
