“In regards to the planet, natural systems have been 38 billion years in the making and are what sustain life on earth - we have lots to learn from them and we need to start valuing them in a whole new way. These systems are rapidly depleting and it is our responsibility to ensure that we re-balance the world and start to protect our natural assets, and in turn our very existence in this planet. Each one of us can make a difference to protecting these natural assets in our personal and work lives.

Entrepreneurs embrace challenges and there is a way for business, governments and the social sector to come together and have a bigger impact on protecting our planet by working together to seek solutions. I urge business leaders and entrepreneurs to get in touch and see how they can join our growing community to combine our resources and act as a force for good”
