Conference on Nature: a business imperative

Join us, CBI South West, and senior executives as we explore how nature and biodiversity play a vital role in our economy, livelihoods, and well-being. The CBI is working with our strategic partners Lloyds Bank and TLT to deliver this event.

Pressure is building for society to change how we account for economic success to protect and enhance our prosperity and the natural world. Climate and nature can no longer be seen in isolation. As more firms recognise the role of nature, we hear more about the opportunities of being ‘nature positive’.

You will hear from insightful and challenging keynote speakers, engage with expert panel discussions and be guided through this important topic by our CBI president, Brian McBride.

Speakers confirmed so far include Colin Skellett, CEO, Wessex Water, Helen Taylor, Ambassador, Ecotricity and Forest Green Rovers, Mel Squires, SW Regional Director, NFU, Sarah Peers, Group Head of Sustainability, Spirax Sarco Engineering Plc, Prof. Brett Day, Professor of Environmental Economics, University of Exeter, Rosie Dunscombe, speaking for Capitals Coalition, and Tania Kumar, Head of Decarbonisation, CBI.

We will help CBI members to answer important questions, including:

  • Why should businesses prioritise nature within their business strategy?
  • What are the business opportunities available through prioritising nature?
  • How can you begin to recognise and quantify the benefits that nature brings? What tools are available to support this?

This is an opportunity for key decision-makers within your organisation and sustainability professionals to share experiences and gain key insights from expert speakers, panel discussions, case studies and audience Q&A.

You’ll particularly benefit from this event if you are:

CEOs / COOs / Managing Directors
Sustainability Directors / Manager
