The upcoming COP-15 will be a watershed event, due to the adoption of a post-2020 global biodiversity framework and will bring together policy state and non-state actors representatives to discuss and propose a new pathway for curbing the loss of biodiversity through collective action.

In light of the evolving pandemic, COP15 will take place in a two-phase approach, with all official parallel events taking place in 2022 to ensure meaningful and safe discussions and the participation of different segments of society in this once in a generation opportunity to chart a new path to biodiversity and the planet.

The Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity through the Global Partnership for Business and Biodiversity (GPBB), and supported by partners, has outlined a series of virtual events with the goal to engage businesses in biodiversity conversations and raise ambitions around the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework. Touching on some of the most critical issues for the business community and the urgent need to revert the loss of biodiversity, these sessions will provide a space for corporate engagement, knowledge sharing, and identifying solutions to shared problems in the months leading up to COP15.
