Business relevance

The loss and degradation of nature poses a direct threat to economic and human well-being. More than half of the worlds’ economic output is estimated to be either moderately or highly dependent on nature. Activities that are associated with “business as usual” are driving nature loss and the way businesses operate must change. To enable corporate action, businesses require science-based targets that are measurable, time-bound and aligned with global sustainability objectives. 1
