Resumen

Act4nature is an initiative launched in 2018 by the French association Entreprises  pour l’Environnement (EpE) and various French partners. The objective is to mobilize enterprises on their direct and indirect impacts, their dependencies and their capacity to act in favour of nature.  This alliance between companies, public organisations, scientists and NGOs has one ambition: create an international and collective dynamic to protect, restore and highlight biodiversity. The implication of CEOs from all sectors makes the attainment of this goal possible.

 

Act4nature international is a French organisation based on voluntary commitments for biodiversity made by international companies. It is led by EpE under a multi-stakeholder steering committee which approved the fact that individual commitments of the companies are SMART.

In 2018 and 2020, 65 then 50 enterprises published their commitments on the website: www.act4nature.com.

Impactos positivos

After two years, act4nature international has allowed to: 

  • Raise awareness and mobilise CEOs and managers from international companies on the necessity of a better integration of biodiversity in their activities and strategies. 
  • Make a French voice heard in the global Business for Nature coalition: it is a coalition of businesses who seek to engage with international organisations dedicated to biodiversity. The coalition seeks to contribute to the ambitious agreement at the 2021 Conference of the Parties (COP 15) to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). 
  • Showcase French companies at the international level by highlighting the quality of their relevant methods, actions and solutions. 
  • Support a wider participation of employees in benefitting nature. The 65 committed companies represented 3.5 million of employees. Many of these employees were encouraged to act at the local level (especially CSR departments), after their CEOs showed commitment, which reinforced their interest for their work and attachment to their companies.
