Quantis was in Marseille last week to talk biodiversity at the IUCN World Conservation Congress. Held once every four years, the event brings together thousands of leaders and decision-makers to drive action around nature conservation. It’s the largest gathering for conservation and sustainable development science, practice and policy. Quantis’ CEO Dimitri Caudrelier and Innovation Strategy Lead Marcial Vargas joined discussions with leaders from COP26, Accor, L’Occitane, Kering and others, to dig into concrete action to tackle biodiversity loss — now.
+ Race to Zero: Dialogue on nature
The links between the climate and biodiversity crises — and how each can greatly amplify the negative consequences of the other — have been clearly demonstrated. Many have called for building synergies between the global efforts to address climate change and the loss of biodiversity. How is this call reflected in how non-state actors, including businesses, are tackling their own emissions and their approaches to the conservation and restoration of nature? The session featured:
- A presentation by Nigel Topping, the UK’s High-Level Climate Action Champion, appointed by the UK Prime Minister in January 2020.
- Insights from Quantis’ Dimitri Caudrelier; Brune Poirson, Accor; Megan Morikawa, Iberostar and Yann-Gaël Rio, Danone on navigating the risks and opportunities of nature conservation associated with climate change mitigation measures.
