The World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) with 60 leading companies and partners are developing business guidance for actions to align strategies with the shared goal of a nature-positive planet by 2030 – Roadmaps to Nature Positive Guidelines to accelerate business accountability, ambition and action for a nature-positive future
This guidance provides a checklist of actions to assess, commit, transform and disclose performance. In addition, we identify six value-chain specific objectives for business to collectively embark on, aligning nature action with climate action, including assessing materiality, setting targets, deploying resources, supporting an enabling policy environment, using credible metrics and reporting progress.
This is currently released as a draft for consultation and will keep evolving by integrating users’ feedback and the latest developments of the nature accountability framework.
The work takes place as part of a broader partnership with the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) and the Science Based Targets Network (SBTN). An overarching call for business to support the emerging International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) guidelines (including for nature) to become the mandatory global baseline for nature as well as climate reporting underpins it.
We invite stakeholders to provide their inputs to this draft guidance and engage in the work. You can register your interest in the consultation process and access the survey via this link before 31 January 2023.
