3 Ways Mining Companies Can Help Protect Biodiversity | GZERO Media

3 ways mining companies can help protect biodiversity

You'd think the best thing an extractive industry like mining can do for biodiversity would be to go out of business. Think again, says International Council on Mining and Metals CEO Rohitesh “Ro” Dhawan.

He shares three ways mining can have a positive impact on reversing the course of nature's destruction during "Time for nature: Turning biodiversity risk into opportunity," a livestream conversation hosted by GZERO in partnership with Suntory.

"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.

Brad Smith Knows A Way To Meet The SDGs | Global Stage | GZERO Media

Microsoft president Brad Smith has a plan to meet the UN's goals

Thanks to the pandemic, we're way off from UN Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. But Microsoft President Brad Smith knows the way to get the job done.

In a Global Stage livestream conversation held at UN headquarters, Smith says he has deep faith in what he calls the "three-legged stool" of government, the private sector, and civil society.

If you build out all three, so the legs are strong, healthy, and know how to work together, then achieving the SDGs is not a pipe dream. It's not about more or less government, but rather about everyone being on the same page.

Why Should the UN Listen to the Private Sector? | GZERO World

Why should the UN listen to the private sector?

The UN is used to mostly dealing with governments, which represent member states, but they no longer monopolize power. That's why Secretary-General António Guterres says he also wants the private sector, cities, civil society, and especially youth to have a voice. In fact, young people make Guterres feel optimistic about the future, and he hopes that they'll continue waking up political leaders as citizens of the world.

Quick Take: Hypocrisy, truth, & authenticity in today's environment

Ian Bremmer's Quick Take:

Hi everybody, Ian Bremmer here. And happy Tuesday to you. I've got a Quick Take starting a little bit later because heck, we had a day off yesterday. It was President's Day. I hope you all enjoyed it. And even in Texas, I know it's tough down there right now, and not much fun. Here in New York, it's actually starting to thaw, which I appreciate, Moose does too.

Want to talk a little bit about hypocrisy, about truth, about authenticity, and what it means in today's environment. There is so much of the news that is driven by people not being trustworthy, by fake news.
