WHY NATURE POSITIVE?
The leading international specialist in biodiversity consulting
Your business – every business – relies on nature.
We chose to call our business Nature Positive because getting to be nature positive is the biggest challenge facing society. We all accept that we need to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and get to net zero to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. But Earth is a complex system and, as with all complex systems, you cannot just study one aspect and expect to understand it. The natural environment provides everything that people need: from goods such as food, timber, minerals and fibres to services such as clean air and water, waste decomposition or pollination and, yes, climate regulation. We must act to preserve it.
Directly or indirectly, your business – even an accountancy firm or management consultancy –depends on the Earth’s natural resources. The problem is that your dependence is often hidden in the value chain; off balance sheet and assumed to be free and readily available. But even small changes in our natural environment can quickly impact on your business, thereby exposing risks previously thought irrelevant.
Your business has huge potential to be a positive force for good. Increasingly, companies are seeing the commercial advantages, over the short and long term, of having sustainability at the heart of the organisation.
At Nature Positive, that is what we are here to do. We are environmental scientists that help you to understand your specific link to nature. Together, we help you quantify your dependence on it and reshape your strategy and operations to unlock the commercial benefits of a nature-positive approach.
