Insetting has tremendous potential to tackle some of the most crucial challenges around supply chain sustainability including climate change, biodiversity loss and farmer livelihoods. However, introducing and scaling insetting inside a company is a major endeavour and one in which not enough insights have been shared to date. With the Practical Guide to Insetting, the IPI attempts to close this gap, providing some of the most important lessons our members have learnt to encourage others to explore insetting as a way to achieve ambitious climate and nature commitments.

Join this webinar to learn more about this new resource to help accelerate practical and transformative action on climate and nature.

In 2020, Nature Positive was a phrase that rose to prominence as part of global efforts to move nature – and biodiversity – up the new sustainability agenda. It speaks to the urgent need to go beyond business as usual approaches to mitigating impacts on nature and explore opportunities to generate positive environmental outcomes.

But how can we make sure that in 2021 and beyond, sentiment turns into action and drives the meaningful, transformative change we need?

Join us for this interactive webinar hosted by the International Platform for Insetting and The Biodiversity Consultancy where we will:

  • explore what Nature Positive means for business;
  • showcase how companies are already making strides towards net gain and net positive outcomes for nature; 
  • demonstrate the role that insetting can play to support the transition to Nature Positive business models; 
  • evaluate together what Nature Positive-driven transformation of business models looks like and what needs to happen to enable this change.

Panelists and facilitation: 

  • Sandra Brandt, Director, International Platform for Insetting
  • Helen Temple, Chief Executive, The Biodiversity Consultancy
  • Dr. Helen Crowley, Head of Sustainable Sourcing and Nature Initiatives, Kering
  • Julie Reneau, Sustainability Strategy and Stakeholder Relationship Manager, Nespresso

Regenerative agriculture practices have the potential to create more resilient supply chains, restore soil health and enable farmers and businesses to thrive. While progress towards regenerative agriculture has accelerated over the past years, there are significant barriers holding us back. What are they? And can insetting help to overcome them?

We invite you to a 1,5h interactive webinar to:

  • explore the barriers to scale regenerative agriculture along with a seven-point-plan to help overcome them;
  • discuss how insetting can act as a strategic mechanism to help to reduce some of the identified barriers;
  • evaluate together your organization’s role in scaling regenerative agriculture practices and driving transformational change;
  • engage and connect with peers and experts in the field.

Webinar objectives:

  • To share learning and resources from Forum’s Growing our Future Report to accelerate the impact of regenerative agriculture.
  • To explore the role your organization can play and how insetting is connected to transforming the agriculture system.

Audience:

  • Members of the International Platform for Insetting

More brands are setting the ambitious goal of becoming ’climate positive’. A group of companies (H&M, IKEA, MAX Burger AB) have together with WWF taken the first steps to develop a framework, aiming to bring together brands who want a credible, scientific and globally accepted way of becoming a ‘climate positive’ company. The group now seeks to engage with other corporates and relevant organizations to further develop the framework around climate positive, and more importantly; the roadmap to achieving this ambition.

Insetting is a strategic mechanism that enables businesses to balance the impact of GHG emissions that otherwise can’t be reduced, whilst contributing to their journey of transitioning to a low carbon business model and building climate resilient value chains. Thus, insetting could be an effective pathway for businesses to achieve a climate positive ambition. At the same time, a climate positive framework that is in full support of relevant initiatives such as the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) and others, could bring further guidance and credibility to a company’s insetting program.

In this webinar we will:

  • provide a first-hand state of play and the future ambition of the climate positive framework and put it into context with the current developments of more detailed guidance of corporate net-zero targets by the SBTi
  • hear valuable insights from H&M and IKEA about their journeys towards becoming a climate positive company
  • evaluate the nexus between the climate positive framework and insetting
  • collect and discuss your feedback to the current climate positive framework draft and its future ambition

Speakers:
Mark Griffiths
, Global Leader of WWF’s Climate Business Hub
Kim Hellström, Strategy Lead at H&M Group
Carl Henrik Josephson, Global Communication Lead Climate at Inter IKEA Group
Sandra Brandt, Director at the International Platform for Insetting
