The United Nations’ World Environment Day on 5 June focuses on biodiversity and the concern about its integrity and its importance for global communities and life on Earth generally as well as markets and economies.
- Losing biodiversity will have irreversible consequences
- The COVID-19 pandemic is symptomatic of natural habitat loss
- Biodiversity is natural capital worth many trillions of dollars
World Environment Day is one of the longest-established focal points for environmental action. Since 1974, governments, businesses, organisations and individuals use the occasion to renew their efforts on a pressing issue. In 2020, that issue is biodiversity.
