Program of the day

Time to act!

We must no longer just do better, we must do what nature needs.

On June 21st, several WWF european offices are organizing in Paris a high-level international conference on Business and Biodiversity, gathering companies who want to step up their commitments towards biodiversity, as well as institutions and partner organizations. 

Following the adoption of the Global Biodiversity Framework in December 2022 at the COP15 in Montreal, the direction to halt and reverse nature loss is now very clear. It is urgent to act, and the role of businesses in this race is central, with the need to align biodiversity targets with planetary boundaries.  

But where and how to start? How to prepare your company for new regulatory frameworks, like the CSRD? How will voluntary standards, like the TNFD or SBTN, help you shape your biodiversity action plan, and be at the forefront of the transformation, preparing for the future?

As a leading NGO on nature preservation, the WWF has experts contributing to the development of most of these new biodiversity standards, as well as long-lasting cooperations with corporates who are already pioneering science based approaches to biodiversity action. This event will build on several previous events on Business and Biodiversity, including those co-hosted with other partners during the World Economic Forum in Davos and with H&M Group and IKEA during Stockholm +50. WWF, alongside some of our committed business partners, is now inviting you to join us for this one day conference, where you will: 

  • understand how everything connects together (CSRD, TNFD, SBTN, etc.)
  • meet the high level experts who contribute to the elaboration of the biodiversity standards and frameworks
  • meet the pioneer companies who have piloted these new tools and frameworks
  • meet your peers in networking sessions
  • pick and choose your favorite sessions, and build a tailored program that suits your own needs
