Champions for Nature

Champions for Nature is a community of leaders disrupting business-as-usual to lead the way to a nature-positive global economy and halt nature loss by 2030.

Part of the Nature Action Agenda (NAA), the Champions community gathers leaders from the public and private sector, civil society, academia, and activism - all playing complementary roles in a multi-stakeholder approach.

The Champions are calling for a global reset in how we do business, by:

Champions launched during the Annual Meeting at Davos in January 2020. In their first year, the Champions recognize that their community is well-positioned to support a green post-COVID-19 recovery through systems transformation for the benefit of the economy, human health, and nature.

‘We are at a unique stage in our history. Never before have we had such an awareness of what we are doing to the planet, and never before have we had the power to do something about that.’

—David Attenborough

In line with its cross-sector focus, the community has three co-chairs for 2020-21:

  • Carlos Alvarado Quesada, President of Costa Rica
  • Alan Jope, CEO of Unilever
  • Inger Andersen, UN Under-Secretary-General and Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme.

The Champions are organized into three working groups, focused on transforming the socio-economic systems with the highest impact on nature. These three systems were identified in the Future of Nature and Business report, part of the Forum’s New Nature Economy reports series, which is making the business and economic case for action to halt nature loss.
