Nature-based Solutions for corporate climate targets

Authors: Martinez, G., Drion, B., Gladstone, J., Vidal, Adriana,

Nature-based Solutions (NbS) are activities undertaken to protect, sustainably manage and restore natural and modified ecosystems to simultaneously benefit people and nature. NbS are critical to addressing challenges like climate change, food security, water security, disaster risk, human health, and social and economic development. This publication outlines the available pathways to include NbS in corporate climate strategies consistent with the NbS definition, principles and Global Standard for NbS™. When correctly implemented, NbS can contribute to climate mitigation and adaptation while offering important benefits for biodiversity and human well-being.
