Description: Achieving the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework targets requires private sector collaboration across landscapes and economic sectors. Industry coalitions are providing tools and guidance to enable companies to achieve the outcomes needed to reverse biodiversity loss.  

In this session, the lead organizations will share common lessons learned from industry coalition work in facilitating business action on biodiversity. Representatives from companies will inspire action by sharing their experiences in building a foundation toward achieving biodiversity targets across their supply chains. They will provide practical tips on identifying priority natural raw materials and landscapes and implementing best practices. Companies will also explore how collaborations across sectors have helped to accelerate their capacity to create positive change.

Speakers will reflect on the primary enablers and barriers to driving biodiversity action in the private sector. The session will conclude with suggestions for how the valuable work businesses are already doing for biodiversity on the ground can be replicated throughout global industry.
