The Business & Nature Forum 2017 is a 1 ½ day event held in Singapore. It is co-located with the Responsible Business Forum “Accelerating SDG Action: Measurement, Performance and Impact”. 

Background

Business both affects ecosystems, and relies on their critical provisioning services such as water, fiber, food; and regulatory services such as climate regulation, flood control and water purification. Over the past 50 years, 60% of the world’s ecosystem services have been degraded. Deforestation alone equals US$2-5 trillion in lost ecosystem value. Companies with global operations and supply chains are seeing challenges due to the loss of critical services that ecosystems provide, while ecosystems are also presenting new business opportunities.

Framed around the Natural Capital Protocol, this Forum aims to trigger active collaboration between business, government and civil society. It will focus on practical sessions bringing together industry leaders, decision makers, civil society and experts to trial approaches, discuss business solutions for a sustainable future and more importantly, to initiate pilot projects to test them. 

The Forum will feature streams that are of global relevance to Business and Biodiversity agenda.
