Many companies are beginning to incorporate nature-based solutions (NBS) in their climate mitigation strategies to offset fossil fuel emissions. At the same time, financing of NBS is an essential and urgently needed component of society’s transition to net-zero emissions.

Conservation, restoration, and improved management of forests are cost-effective solutions for large-scale reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and removal of carbon from the atmosphere and thus help to hold the global temperature increase to well below 2.0°C or 1.5°C above preindustrial levels.
