"We don't have any right to destroy nature" — Suntory CEO Tak Niinami
In biodiversity circles, many are talking up nature-positive as the new net zero. But for some companies, striving for a world where nature is being restored and is regenerating rather than declining is more than a buzzword.
"We don't have any right to destroy nature," Suntory CEO Tak Niinami says during the livestream discussion "Time for nature: Turning biodiversity risk into opportunity," hosted by GZERO in partnership with Suntory.
For Niinami, corporations need to make money, but also contribute to society. And companies have a lot of know-how they can apply to help reverse biodiversity loss in the future.
"Nature positive is not nature-neutral," he says. "Nature-positive is additional value for us to create for the generation to come."
