Corporate Leaders Discuss Investments in Nature with TIME Magazine at Climate Week NYC

Published 16 October 2023

Dr. Saskia Feast from Climate Impact Partners was part of a roundtable discussion that brought together the most important corporate leaders connecting private sector finance with nature conservation and restoration. Attendees included Amazon, Amex, Airbnb, GSK, HP, Ingka Group (IKEA), L’Oreal, Mastercard, Rabobank, Salesforce, Unilever, VMware, Conservation International, The Nature Conservancy, American Forest Foundation, Pachama, Space Intelligence, and Sylvera.

TIME magazine covered the discussion, which was moderated by Kelley Kizzier from the Bezos Earth Fund.

Shyla Raghav, Chief Climate Officer at TIME, wrote:

“A recurring theme was that the expectation of perfection was the enemy of actual progress, and that if we want to inspire more businesses to act on climate, we need to demand they have clear goals, a plan to achieve it, and clear, regular communication of proof of progress. To demand perfection is to scare away many from even taking their first steps on their climate journey.

“It’s clear that leading businesses aren’t retreating from investing in nature. In fact, they’re doubling down. Companies need to speak up—and be encouraged to do so—if we are going to see these practices become mainstream and scale. Not because of pressure from the climate and conservation community, but because it’s good business.”
