Sustainability reporting can be viewed as a useful and beneficial tool, unnecessarily resource-intensive hurdle or downright greenwashing. How should the novel and established biodiversity reporting frameworks be utilized in aiding the companies to move towards a more sustainable future?

Our panel brings together experts from academia, consulting and business to discuss on the best practices and approaches of biodiversity reporting.

Join us as we delve into this critical topic and discover how we can work together to create a more sustainable future for all.
