The life on Earth that we desire for today and tomorrow fundamentally depends on clean air and water, biodiversity, healthy land and oceans, and a stable climate. These are the global commons: the shared resources that ensure a planet where we can all thrive.
This session will mobilize leadership for urgent transformation of economic sectors that is needed to safeguard our global commons, and introduce science-based targets as a business-focused driver for innovation and action.
Participants will discuss the concrete roles that businesses and investors can play in solving sustainable development challenges, and the opportunities for collaboration with stakeholders.
This session is designed to be highly interactive and focused on action, in such a way that all participants will be deeply engaged throughout the session. In addition to expert input, the workshop provides ample opportunities for peer-to-peer exchange.
This session is organized by Stewardship Asia Centre and the Global Commons Alliance; a network of organizations, businesses and governments aiming to ensure our planet remains habitable. The Alliance brings together leadership, technology, science, innovation, and communication to positively transform the world’s economic systems and protect the global commons.
- Create a shared vision for the transformation of business and economic systems that we need for the stewardship of the global commons;
- Identify action needed to rapidly accelerate transformation;
- Grow the Global Commons Alliance, including encouraging Asia business leaders to commit to adopting science-based targets.
