Philips is a technology company with a focus on delivering meaningful innovation. They serve both professional and consumer markets throughout the world in the areas of health systems, personal health and lighting solutions.
Philips and Except started to collaborate in the Leaders for Nature Forum. We join forces to find solutions for pressing natural capital questions. Together with other Leaders for Nature we explore needs for innovative lighting solutions to offer biodiversity a chance to flourish.
On 17th April 2015, IUCN organized the Leaders for Nature forum in Eindhoven. Except supported IUCN in a year long trajectory to prepare and guide the Forum in a new format. This included concept development, stakeholder involvement and preparation of the challenges.
The preparations resulted in 10 challenges brought in by the network of Leaders for Nature. Over 150 participants from business, NGOs and government joined the forum. Guided by Except, teams worked on the most pressing natural capital challenges.
