COP26: How to avoid missing the point when hitting net zero

Thursday, 4 November, 12:30–13:15

We are at a tipping point. Businesses and governments are setting net-zero targets to tackle the climate crisis, but our direct and inextricable link to all natural systems cannot be ignored in these efforts. The World Economic Forum estimates that nature is responsible for half of global GDP ($40 trillion). As we seek to adapt to climate risks to sustain our businesses, we cannot treat nature, or the goods and services it provides, as externalities. Join the Nature Positive team live from COP26 in Glasgow as we explore what real sustainability looks like and the three big changes in thinking that all businesses will have to go through in the run up to 2030.

Stephanie Wray is the founder of Nature Positive, a boutique consultancy assessing corporate biodiversity risks and dependencies. She is an ecologist and biodiversity expert with over 25 years’ experience in the assessment of the impacts of major infrastructure projects and organisations on biodiversity. She has worked in the UK, Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Before joining the RSK group, Stephanie was Global Environment Director for Hyder Consulting, now Arcadis. She has held a number of non-executive, interim management and consulting roles at organisations including Atkins, National Grid, Highways Agency and ERM. A past president of the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM), Stephanie is chair of CIEEM’s Strategic Policy Panel that coordinates the institute’s policy activities throughout the UK and Ireland and is regularly called on to provide advice to ministers, select committees and government departments and agencies.
