18th May 2021

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR THE EVENT

Join us on Tuesday 18 May 2021 from 9.30am-11am for a joint Aldersgate Group and RSPB event on how the recommendations from The Economics of Biodiversity: The Dasgupta Review can be taken forward and drive action for a nature-positive economy.

The Treasury’s publication of the landmark Dasgupta Review in February brought renewed focus to the ongoing ecological crisis, its implications, and our economic systems’ role in perpetuating it. With biodiversity declining faster than at any time in human history, it is clear that action must be taken to reverse this trend and build a more sustainable relationship between the economy and the natural world.
 
That is why Aldersgate Group and RSPB have convened this session to hear from business leaders on how they are taking this agenda forward, with further focus on from the role of government to ensure success, Treasury’s response to the Review, the Environment Bill, and the most effective policy measures to accelerate progress and drive biodiversity renewal.
 
Following a keynote speech from Sir Roger Gifford, Chairman of the Green Finance Institute and Member of the Advisory Panel for The Dasgupta Review, on the publication’s key findings, a multi-sector panel will discuss the next steps for business and government to help the transition to a nature-positive economy by 2030.
