This priniciple is about protecting and restoring land for the benefit of people and wildlife.

One Planet Goals for land and nature:

  • A positive contribution to local biodiversity and wildlife corridors
  • Maximise carbon sequestration in the soil and biomass
  • Maximise synergies between agriculture, forestry, biodiversity and carbon storage
  • Enhance 'ecosystem services' such as clean water and air
  • Engage people in recognising the value of nature, including its value to human health

 

For example: habitat protection / creation, responsible sourcing of materials, global protection of ecosystems, biodiversity audits / surveys, reforestation, carbon sequestration, anything else we thing is important.
