G7 leaders agree commitments to biodiversity and sustainability in Nature Compact

The G7 Nature Compact agreement to protect, conserve and restore biodiversity was agreed at the Cornwall G7 Leaders' Summit

At the G7 Leaders’ Summit in Cornwall in June, countries came together and agreed a shared G7 Nature Compact – on outline of key commitments which bring G7 countries together to halt and reverse biodiversity loss by 2030, tackle climate change, deforestation, marine litter and the illegal wildlife trade.

The G7 Nature Compact locks in agreements to protect, conserve and restore biodiversity, as well as progress reports on these commitments to ensure tangible results by 2030.

The commitments link with the pledge to address the most pressing international and interlinked challenges of biodiversity loss and climate change at the October CBD COP15 in Kunming, China and the November UNFCCC COP26 conference in Glasgow, UK.
