China has an opportunity to achieve its economic and social ambitions and the vision of ecological civilization, while creating millions of sustainable jobs by 2030 if it transforms three systems at the heart of its economy, according to the latest report in the World Economic Forum’s New Nature Economy Report series.
The new analysis finds that two thirds (65%) of China’s total GDP is at risk of disruption from nature loss.
By urgently making 15 nature-positive transitions across three socio-economic systems, China could add $1.9 trillion in annual business opportunities and create 88 million resilient jobs by 2030. For each of the transitions required, the report sets out recommendations for business- and government-driven action and highlights progress to date and case studies.
