As a global population, we are depleting natural resources faster than the earth can replenish them – and at an accelerating rate.
It’s a crisis that equals, possibly even surpasses, climate change.
Nature underpins all global activity. It's estimated that huge biodiversity losses are already putting a million species at risk of extinction and making 80% of the UN Sustainable Development Goals potentially unachievable.
There is so much we can do to help, including increasing our use of renewable energy, supporting the elimination of deforestation, and cutting waste by recycling and reducing. It’s time to make a change.
