The Hague, November 23-24
Ecosphere+ attended the Natural Capital Conference in the Hague, Netherlands, and met with experts in industry and government to discuss natural capital in business. We were a sponsor of the conference alongside Shell (the oil and gas company) and had an exhibition stand.
Anna Lehmann, our Senior Technical Advisor, presented on Ecosphere+’s mission and projects. Our presentation was a pecha kucha which involves only pictures, we even had one of a unicorn! We were keen to demonstrate the power of forests as a key climate and sustainable development solution.
Our partner Althelia also attended and organised a workshop where a panel of experts from Pierre Fabre, Nespresso and Ecosphere+ discussed how to measure the value created by CSR action, especially on biodiversity and social co-benefits, how to scale up insetting and involve impact investors, and how insetting can support forest conservation.
