CBA at royal biodiversity reception

This news item relates to the EFI-led initiative which ran from 2020 to September 2023

Members of the Circular Bioeconomy Alliance were honoured to attend a reception at Buckingham Palace on 17 February, hosted by His Majesty The King.

The reception brought together environment ministers, business leaders and indigenous representatives in support of action on global biodiversity. The event offered the opportunity to discuss the practical delivery of the Global Biodiversity Framework, which consists of four overarching goals to protect nature and aims to address biodiversity loss and restore ecosystems.

Progress on three Living Labs in the Himalayas, the Amazon and Rwanda was shared with the King, who met a number of CBA members, including Lombard Odier, Palladium Group, ZSL, Reforest’Action, ARCOS Network and Fundación Pachamama, as well as SMI Fashion Task Force members with whom the CBA collaborates. The King was given a colourful necklace by the CBA Amazon Living Lab leader, Domingo Peas.
