Speaking at the One Planet Summit in France today – HRH The Prince of Wales will unveil the Terra Carta (Earth Charter) – which provides a roadmap to 2030 for businesses to move towards an ambitious and sustainable future; one that will harness the power of Nature combined with the transformative power, innovation and resources of the private sector.
HRH The Prince of Wales is making an urgent appeal to private sector leaders around the world to join this endeavour and to give their support to the Terra Carta.
One of Terra Carta’s actions will be initiated today in Paris, with the creation of a Natural Capital Investors Alliance targeting $10 billion by 2022.

Devising its name from the historic Magna Carta, which inspired a belief in the fundamental rights and liberties of people over 800 years ago, the Terra Carta aims to reunite people and planet, by giving fundamental rights and value to Nature, ensuring a lasting impact and tangible legacy for this generation.
