His Royal Highness calls for a Marshall-like Plan for Nature, People and Planet
to accelerate progress

The pace and scale of the Reset effort required is unprecedented and the Sustainable Markets Initiative, working with ‘Coalitions of the Willing’, is identifying and scaling up solutions that aim to put Nature, People and Planet at the heart of our economy.

To accelerate these efforts, HRH called for a form of ‘Marshall Plan for Nature, People and Planet’ to advance a ‘blue-green’ recovery and set the course for a sustainable future rooted in a new economic model – a circular bioeconomy that puts Nature and the restoration of Natural Capital back at the centre of the entire process.

Three market transitions underpin the transformation to sustainable markets:

  • A dramatic shift in corporate business models
  • An aligned, incentivized and mobilized financial system
  • An enabling environment that attracts investment and incentivizes action

Sustainable markets are designed with the intent to ensure the economy operates in favour of people and planet while contributing to growth and prosperity.

It is time to align sustainable solutions with funding in a way that can transform the marketplace. I am greatly encouraged that the members of my Sustainable Markets initiative are starting to lead the way.
