Biodiversity Credits:
A Guide to Support Early Use with High Integrity

Biodiversity credits could benefit nature, people and business. When strongly assured for high environmental and social integrity, credits can generate benefits for nature and Indigenous peoples and local communities (IPs and LCs), while simultaneously enabling private sector value creation. High-integrity biodiversity credits could create value for businesses by reducing exposure to physical nature risks, supporting positive nature outcomes aligned with consumer preferences, keeping pace with regulatory changes, supporting a robust social licence to operate, reducing reputational risks, securing access to competitive finance, supporting talent acquisition, and increasing employee motivation and retention.

State of Climate Action 2023

The State of Climate Action 2023 provides the world’s most comprehensive roadmap of how to close the gap in climate action across sectors to limit global warming to 1.5°C. It finds that recent progress toward 1.5°C-aligned targets isn’t happening at the pace and scale necessary and highlights where action must urgently accelerate this decade to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, scale up carbon removal and increase climate finance.

The Effect of Multinational Enterprises on Climate Change

Multinational enterprises (MNEs) provide both a fundamental risk to and an opportunity for climate change mitigation. The climate ambitions of MNEs will affect the environmental performance of countries around the world. The objective of this report is to study the effect of MNEs on climate change. Toward this goal, the report reviews the latest available data, conducts new empirical analysis, and summarizes pioneering literature.

The Development, Climate, and Nature Crisis

There are increasingly clear opportunities to achieve development and climate double wins and there is a better understanding of the challenges that can turn these opportunities into trade-offs.
