Covering exciting new developments in the sector, including tools and resources such as The Dasgupta Review, the Integrated Biodiversity Assessment Tool, and the IUCN guidance on monitoring corporate biodiversity, the sessions were designed to support businesses in their natural capital journey, no matter how far along they are.

A number of companies also held sessions, showcasing the processes and steps undertaken to reduce their negative impacts on nature and promote biodiversity.
