On 12th August, sustainavistas hosted our 20th event in support of the Call to Action launched by Business For Nature coalition. During the webinar, Martin Sneary, Project Director at Business For Nature, and sustainavista Marina Repina, shared insights around the Nature is Everyone’s Business campaign in support of the Call to Action.
The key aim of Business For Nature is to unify businesses in supporting policy makers in their efforts to reverse nature loss by 2030. This is being done through a number of events and notably a call to action that businesses of all sizes and in all industries are invited to sign up to. The pledge is a simple statement of support by the signatory but does not imply any commitment by the company to change their ways. According to Martin Sneary, this is an easy starting point for businesses to become aware of the plight of nature and to show their concern.
The list of signatories will be presented to the United Nations at the UN summit at the end of September 2020, and already more than 250 companies including some very well-known names (Unilever, Danone, Nestlé, AXA to name just a few) have signed up.
Sustainavistas is an action-driven International network connecting 340+ professionals coming from 30+ countries, alumni from Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership, change agents in motion to reach the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
With this joint campaign, Business for Nature and sustainavistas send out and urgent call to protect, restore and sustainably use our natural resources. To make the first step, it only requires to sign the Call to Action.
Every voice counts.
