Nature Positive Strategy: Practical Guidance for Corporates


Pollination, April 2024

Drawing on their global work on nature, Pollination has published a user guide for corporates for action and ambition on the nature-positive transition.

Global frameworks and initiatives, such as the Kunming-Montreal Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework, the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures framework, and the Science Based Targets Network’s guidance on setting nature targets, are rapidly increasing regulatory and reporting expectations at the national and subnational levels, which will shape the corporate response to the nature-positive agenda.

In this report, Pollination outline steps corporates can take clear to respond to the nature-positive agenda and “remain competitive in their changing operating environment”. The paper provides practical guidance on how to design and implement a nature-positive aligned corporate strategy.

Six key principles have been distilled that corporates can apply to future-proof their corporate strategy, specifically:

  • Principle 1 – Integrating objectives for people, nature, and climate.
  • Principle 2 – Applying a holistic definition of nature.
  • Principle 3 – Applying the mitigation hierarchy to contribute to nature-positive.
  • Principle 4 – Making a systemic contribution to nature-positive.
  • Principle 5 – Identifying and acting in priority locations.
  • Principle 6 – Working toward an overall net gain in nature.
