The growing appetite of humanity is fuelling a resource deficient economy with impacts of climate change, water scarcity, loss of biodiversity, poor air quality, poverty, health issues and many more. The pandemic along with the amplifying challenge of climate change has demonstrated the urgent need for action for achieving sustainability. In this regard, CII is organising a series of webinars as a run up to 17th Sustainability Summit and beyond that will focus on topics like, Climate Adaptation, Innovation for Decarbonisation, Nature Based Solutions, Sustainable Lifestyle, Water Security, and Evolving Landscape of Non-Financial Reporting. They are organised in partnership with Hindustan Zinc Limited (HZL).

In the series of six webinars, the third webinar is focused on Unlocking the Potential of Nature based Solutions on 5 July. As the pressure mounts to move to net zero, companies need a sustainability strategy that sets out how they are tackling their carbon footprint in line with global targets. Nature-based solutions have the potential to unlock environmental, social, and economic benefits. The solutions help to protect, restore, and enhance natural and modified ecosystems. This webinar celebrates the Van Mahotsav (Forest Festival) spreading the importance of nature. The session will highlight how businesses with the help of nature-based solutions reverse nature loss and restore vital natural systems on which their economic activity depends.
