Our new white paper “Understanding Corporate Climate and Nature Strategies and the Role of Tropical Forest Protection” provides an in-depth analysis of emerging best practice for corporate climate and nature strategies, supported by real-world examples. The aim is to give sustainability professionals and senior executives a clear definition of what claims such as net zero, carbon neutral and nature positive mean, and how different companies are using them.
Our paper also aims to show how high-ambition companies can support their chosen climate and nature strategies through purchasing high-integrity emissions reduction credits from national and large-scale REDD+ initiatives.
This is an approach strongly recommend by the Science Based Targets initiative, which recently called for companies to invest in high-integrity emissions reductions credits from large-scale tropical forest protection programmes as a matter of urgency.
We hope that the paper is successful in convincing you that a high-ambition, net-zero, and nature-positive pathway – with tropical forest protection at its center – is one that companies should be on.
