High road towards sustainable business and investment
UN, Global Compact Thailand leaders to seek high road towards sustainable business and investment in nature and biodiversity
published : 6 Oct 2022 at 10:45
A forum of business, investors, regulators, civil society organisations and UN agencies will consider how best to leverage the momentum prior to the annual Global Compact Network Thailand (GCNT) Forum 2022.
The webinar – to be held on Tuesday, 11 October 2022 from 14:00-16:00 hours – will explore themes around “investments in nature and biodiversity for new business opportunities.” It will focus on the business case for investing in nature and how biodiversity will help the economy function better. It will also discuss how the climate change and loss of biodiversity are not mutually exclusive environmental emergencies, but part of an interconnected planetary crisis that needs to be addressed with urgency and scale—and in an integrated way.
This dialogue comes in the wake of positive developments in the context of Thailand’s policy regarding better environmental conservation and natural resources management. In recent years, there has been increased awareness over the challenges faced by the Thai private sector from the consequences of climate change and its impact on biodiversity. Participants will be able to share their experiences in goal setting and driving action for the environment as well as take stock of good practices for advancing responsible business.
