New Corporate Reality: Setting Targets for Climate and Biodiversity

Presented by EY

2:00 pm-2:45 pm

The private sector plays a crucial role in the global transition to a sustainable economy, and effective governance is essential to ensure that businesses accelerate this transition. To achieve this, it is crucial for corporations to set ambitious targets for both climate and biodiversity that are grounded in scientific principles and shared across the industry. What is the significance of setting targets for both biodiversity and climate, and why is it important for corporations to do so? How can we ensure that the targets set by corporations for climate and biodiversity are based on scientific principles and can be effectively implemented? What should be the next steps towards managing biodiversity and climate transition risks?
