Nature Action 100 Launches Science Council

Investor advocacy group Nature Action 100 has recruited 11 experts from universities and other organisations to serve on a new body that will advise on scientific matters. The Science Council will provide expert guidance and support to ensure the quality and rigour of the initiative’s science-based research and technical activities, Nature Action 100 said. The 11 experts were picked for their expertise, experience and commitment to biodiversity conservation, and represent organisations including the Nature Conservancy, the University of Minnesota, the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Stockholm University. The council will be co-chaired by Marco Lambertini, Convener of the Nature Positive Initiative and former director general of the World Wide Fund for Nature, and Sharon Brooks, Head of Nature Economy at the UN Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre. “I am delighted to have been invited to co-chair the Nature Action 100 Science Council at a crucial time in our quest to transition to a nature-positive economy,” said Lambertini. “Halting and reversing nature loss has never been more urgent as we are approaching dangerous ecosystemic tipping points, which will compromise our ability to address today’s most pressing societal challenges, from climate and water security to poverty and human health”. Nature Action 100 is an initiative of more than 200 global investors with US$28 trillion under management or advice. Its aims to help member investors engage companies on nature and biodiversity issues.
