We are at the start of a crucial decade of action for nature, and decisions made this year will impact future generations. That’s why we need to make sure these changes are included in important global agreements such as COP26, to lay the foundations for an equitable, nature-positive future with net-zero emissions.
A low carbon, nature rich future can revitalise our economy and take advantage of the exceptional natural capital we have in Scotland and the rest of the UK. The Thriving Natural Capital Challenge Centre is supporting the Scottish Conservation Finance Pioneers network in pushing for policy change top down, and enabling and energising action from the bottom up. We want to develop new mechanisms that can deliver returns for investors, whether they are private businesses, public agencies and communities.
