WHAT IF TAKING ACTION ON THE CLIMATE CRISIS
WAS EVERYONE’S BUSINESS?
The flourishing of humans and business success are inextricably linked to the health of nature. A stewardship approach builds increased resilience in urban and rural landscapes, protects critical natural assets, helps to climate-proof businesses and communities. Business investment in restoring nature reduces human vulnerability to future shocks, preserves biodiversity, and underpins positive social and economic outcomes.
Business in the Community (BITC ) is calling on business to:
- Identify where and how business impacts on ecosystems.
- Understand the risk to the resources your business depends on and take steps to improve the health of water, land, biodiversity, and air quality.
- In urban environments, identify where green and blue infrastructure can be used to increase resilience and support communities to implement initiatives.
- Identify opportunities to invest in preserving nature to create value in new ways such as boosting health and wellbeing, accelerating climate action and building a circular economy.
To support our members to reach these goals, we have a series of practical content, engaging events, and bespoke advisory support.
