Nurturing nature: why we’ve joined Business for Nature’s global coalition to reverse nature loss

Earthwatch is proud to join Business for Nature’s coalition of influential organisations, forward-thinking business and NGOs. We are joining the alliance, alongside organisations such as WWF; World Economic Forum; IUCN and the University of Cambridge, to amplify a powerful business voice calling for governments to adopt policies that will reverse nature loss in this decade.

The coalition’s Call to Action, launched at a global leadership event last month, will demonstrate to policy makers that there is a powerful collective business voice calling for more ambitious nature policies.

Nature is at the heart of everything we do. Healthy societies, resilient economies and thriving businesses all rely on it, but these natural resources and ecosystems are under huge strain. We believe protecting nature is essential for all our futures and that businesses have a key role to play in reversing nature loss. Earthwatch has a long history of engaging with businesses to help them understand their environmental impacts, build resilience and demonstrate leadership in sustainability. We work with companies to put an emphasis on nature and improve their practices to protect it within their industries. Our research areas give tangible ways for business to explore the positive impact they can have.

For example, our work in Sustainable Agriculture demonstrates a business case for improving the sustainability of supply chains, specifically looking at soil healthy and protecting biodiversity. Research and initiatives from our Climate-Proof Cities programme, such as Tiny Forests, is identifying how nature-based solutions can create urban areas resilient to climate change. And our global FreshWater Watch programme has direct links to the water industry’s efforts to protect fresh water systems, on which we all rely.

Business for Nature’s Call to Action comes at a significant time for society. As political leaders plan for our post-COVID recovery, they cannot afford to overlook the role of nature as the beating heart of a ‘green recovery’ and the foundations needed to truly build back a better world. We believe that nature is everyone’s business.
