The European Business and Nature Summit will provide:
An Action Agenda for Nature and People was launched at the United Nations (UN) Biodiversity Conference in 2018. This agenda aims to catalyse actions from all sectors and stakeholders of society in support of biodiversity, and support the adoption of an ambitious post-2020 global biodiversity framework at the fifteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP15) of the Convention on Biological Diversity taking place in 2020. This New Deal for Nature and People will, in its turn, be a basis for the post-2020 EU biodiversity strategy.
Seizing this global momentum the EBNS will strengthen the role of businesses in supporting nature conservation and its sustainable use. Supporting the Action Agenda for Nature and People the summit represents a key milestone in the engagement of businesses in this process and their commitments to nature conservation.
The EBNS is a two-day summit on business, biodiversity and natural capital co-organised by the European Business and Biodiversity Platform (European Commission), Ecoacsa, Fundación Empresa y Clima, Fundación Biodiversidad from Ministry for Ecological Transition – through the Spanish Business and Biodiversity Initiative – and the Ministry of the Environment of Finland and hosted by CaixaForum Madrid.
