Huge win today for humanity-UN resolution recognizes right to clean, healthy environment!

  • Vanessa Hernandez
Last week the UN passed a resolution recognising the human right to a clean, healthy and sustainable environment. We are proud to have joined over fifty businesses in calling on governments to support this resolution and recognise that a healthy environment is key to human well-being, thriving societies and long-term business performance

We, the undersigned, are a group of business leaders who seek to catalyse a movement of business for a better world, one in which both people and nature can thrive. We call on Member States at the UN General Assembly to unite in support of universal recognition of the human right to a safe, clean, healthy and sustainable environment because we recognise it as fundamental to the functioning of our businesses, our societies and our economies.

Businesses rely on nature for resources such as food, fibre, minerals and building materials; ecosystem services such as pollination of crops, water filtration, waste decomposition, climate sequestration and climate regulation; and healthy and prosperous societies that give them their customers and workforces. A UN resolution on the right to a healthy environment would serve as an important catalyst to protect our natural capital and create the conditions through which business and communities can thrive sustainably.
