COP28: Tanya Steele
"We are not apart from nature. We are part of nature. So it's important that we acknowledge it, we respect it, and then we consider how we can stop damaging and losing so much, and how we can actually enable it to flourish."
Tanya Steele, CEO of the World Wide Fund for Nature UK, understands that addressing the damage we have done to the natural world requires investment in economies at the frontline of climate change. And with the energy, ideas and innovation that have emerged from COP28, the private sector has the opportunity to play a major part in this.
To achieve a one-and-a-half degree world, she believes it is also vital that national legislations are introduced to phase out fossil fuels, create sustainable food and agriculture systems, and introduce financial incentives to successfully lead the transition into long-term green economies.
