What is Nature Positive?
Nature Positive is a global societal goal defined as ‘Halt and Reverse Nature Loss by 2030 on a 2020 baseline, and achieve full recovery by 2050’. To put this more simply, it means ensuring more nature in the world in 2030 than in 2020 and continued recovery after that.
Nature-based solutions, which include everything from regenerative agriculture to green roofs, have the potential to create over 390 million jobs by 2030. When we invest in nature, we build resilience, adapt more effectively to shifting climates, and bring temperatures down.
Thanks to milestones such as the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework, the Science Based Targets Network, and the debut of the Nature Action 100 initiative, businesses and investors are better equipped than ever to place nature at the core of their operations.
For those already embarked on their nature-positive journey, they are leading the way. But it’s not too late for others to join the movement. The degradation of our natural assets threatens over half of the global GDP.
By adopting a nature-positive strategy, we not only ensure sustainable development and protect jobs, but also mount a stronger defense against climate change.
