GEO for Business Finance Brief Launch - 'Changing Finance to Catalyze Transformation: How financial institutions can accelerate the transition to an environmentally sustainable economy'
GEO for Business is a co-creation process meant to be written by business voices in order to speak to a business audience (by business, for business) about the types of systemic transformations that are needed between now and 2050 to ensure we have an environmentally, socially and economically sustainable future. It helps identify opportunities for the private sector to collaborate in achieving a nature-positive and circular economy. In this way, it aims to advance Agenda 2030 and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The GEO for Business process provides opportunities for businesses to collaborate in developing plans, business strategies, technology pathways, risk assessments, mechanisms and enablers for building a nature-positive future.

The GEO for Business summary products (called ‘Business Briefs’) are being developed with guidance provided by the GEO for Business Advisory Committee of major business and environment non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and intergovernmental organizations (IGOs). The Business Briefs are expected to be released throughout 2021, complementing the main Global Environment Outlook assessment and other UNEP business-environment publications by providing brief ‘action-oriented guides’ for business on how best to address specific environmental issues.

The next Business Brief is entitled "Changing Finance to Catalyze Transformation: How financial institutions can accelerate the transition to an environmentally sustainable economy" will be launched virtually as a high-level interactive panel discussion with opening remarks from Ligia Noronha (UN Assistant Secretary-General and Head of UNEP, New York Office). The launch event will bring together the authors and leading private sector representatives in an interactive conversation.
