Rebalance Earth - Natural Capital Conference 
Join us on Tuesday the 21st of February 2023
In the last 50 years we have witnessed a 69% drop in wildlife populations as reported by the WWF Living Planet Report. This in addition, to degrading ecosystems could trigger a downward spiral of US$2.7 trillion in global Gross Domestic Product by 2030 according to the UNDP.

The Rebalance Earth - Natural Capital Conference is a one-day event that brings together world class experts from a variety of fields to discuss the current state and future of natural capital. This includes topics such as biodiversity, the economic value of nature, and the role technology, standards and frameworks play in transforming natural capital as an investible asset class.

The conference will feature keynote speakers and panel discussions focused on the challenges companies face in addressing climate change and biodiversity loss, whether that’s in realising their Net Zero and Nature Positive Targets.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from leading thought leaders, policymakers, and practitioners about the latest developments on how to implement their net zero ambitions with a nature first approach. What are the tools available for them to adopt such an approach and set nature positive targets. It will also address the roles standards, ratings and financial disclosure frameworks have for reporting on their positive nature impacts.

In addition to presentations and discussions, a number of breakout rooms for tea and coffee are available for networking with others who are working on similar issues.

Whether you are a Corporate C-Suite or ESG Officer, a Fund Manager, Policymaker, or Practitioner, the Rebalance Earth - Natural Capital Conference is the perfect opportunity to learn more about this important issue and connect with others who are working to invest and protect natural capital.
