The fifteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (COP15) is implementing the transformative Global Biodiversity Framework. We are now in the final sprint to help us achieve our Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), achieve net-zero carbon emissions, promote prosperity and improve the well-being of people, especially the most vulnerable.

All businesses must realize that we must join hands and redouble our efforts to take the bright road of reducing negative impacts and increasing positive impacts by restoring and regenerating nature. Through the Natural Capital Protocol, Science-Based Targets Network (SBTN), Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) and other guidelines Documents, tools and methods, we must be ready now to move forward faster.

It is everyone's responsibility to protect the earth. We hereby call on all relevant parties to work together and take the following actions:

  • Assessing impacts and dependencies on nature

  • Disclosure of important information related to nature

  • Publicly commit to avoid and reduce negative impacts, prioritizing what matters most throughout business operations, value chains and portfolios

  • Change the strategy and model of the enterprise, restore the ecology and natural regeneration, and carry out multi-party cooperation at various levels of rivers, lakes and seas

The fifteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP15) provided a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to send a strong signal to businesses and financial institutions that the current approach to human development is short-sighted, economic development comes at the expense of the environment, and in the long run look, it's not worth the loss. Mandatory assessment and disclosure will level the playing field for businesses, enhance corporate responsibility, engage investors, empower consumer oversight, engage SMEs in supply chains, protect the rights of local residents and communities, and ultimately accelerate Economic Transformation. 

But there is currently a lack of clear policies for companies and financial institutions to change their business models. The government lacks information on implementing economic transformation and tracking progress. Assessment and disclosure are critical first steps to action, but only mandates can make a difference.


Leverage answers the call to join other stakeholders in helping to successfully implement global agreements to protect nature.

 

To protect the environment and promote sustainable development, Leverage is in action.
