Net negative and nature positive: Disclosure as a game changer or cheap talk?
The aim of this workshop organized by the Pufendorf Theme Nature by Numbers is to explore options and pathways for enhanced climate and biodiversity action. The workshop brings together high-profile experts from policy, industry, financial markets and academia - all active in the ongoing sustainability transformation. We delve into the climate and biodiversity issues and their interaction, the role of metrics in their management, as well as roles, responsibilities and agents of change, for the purpose of identifying the critical steps forward.
