Climate change and biodiversity collapse mean that our world is facing a double crisis. By working with nature instead of against it, we can avoid unleashing 'irrecoverable carbon' and conserve biodiversity – a cornerstone of our economic and social fabric that affects the industries we have and the food we eat.
COP26 aspires to boost public and private efforts in nature conservation and in accelerating sustainable land use.
Explore the map and read about the projects and people who are pioneering new ways to fund and carry out nature conservation and restoration – from wild cats returning to their homes in the Colombian rainforest to local communities gaining more sustainable livelihood opportunities in Ghana.
After decades of glacially slow steps to address the climate emergency, it's make or break time. With an avalanche of net zero commitments by companies and governments around the world, we are seeing signs of hope. Businesses, cities and investors are now racing to reduce, avoid and remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.
The first movers to pursue corporate net zero targets will be the leaders and advocates for changing the way we do better business. This will also hedge against the risk of ever-tightening government policies and investor scrutiny, and create business opportunities in zero emission solutions.
Explore the map to learn more about what net zero is, why so many companies are taking action, and what opportunities it has created for them. You'll also learn about how the pandemic has influenced the climate journeys of businesses around the world.
COP26 is being described as the most critical climate event since the 2015 Paris Agreement. National leaders from around the world must report back on their progress towards global climate goals, but there will be important decisions to be made too – notably an agreement on the details of the 'Paris Rulebook' on Article 6. This system of rules will govern how the Paris Agreement will work in practice, specifically when it comes to international carbon markets and other forms of cooperation.
At the same time, many businesses have been forging ahead by taking voluntary action, showing governments that they need to speed up policy decisions.
Explore the map and read about the recent developments in climate policy, how such policies are being put into practice, and how the changing policy landscape can create opportunities for businesses across the world.
