🗞️ Driving the news: GSK and Kering, among five corporations, have adopted nature strategies in line with Business for Nature's ‘It’s Now for Nature’ campaign, aimed at mitigating nature risks and enhancing business resilience
• This initiative aligns with the Global Biodiversity Framework to improve supply chain productivity and efficiency

🔭 The context: Material extraction and processing account for half of global greenhouse gas emissions and over 90% of biodiversity loss
• Disruptions in natural systems can lead to significant operational and financial risks for businesses, yet only 1% understand their dependencies on nature

🌍 Why it matters for the planet: A sustainable nature strategy can bolster business resilience and reduce negative environmental impacts, which is critical as over half of the global GDP depends on nature
• Protecting ecosystems is essential for climate resilience and sustainability goals

⏭️ What's next: As regulatory frameworks like the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework are implemented, more companies are expected to develop and disclose their nature strategies
• This movement aims to generate significant business value and job creation by 2030
