Biodiversity: a strategic priority for investors?
Why is biodiversity relevant for investors and how do we start to put a value on nature-based solutions? Consider that at least 50% of global GDP is dependent on nature (according to the World Economic Forum in 2020), that’s approximately USD 50 trillion reliant upon unsustainable sources of clean oxygen, water, and food. Loss of biodiversity is becoming the undervalued environmental issue of our time.
The material value of nature and the risks and opportunities associated with its sustainable management is an emergent phenomenon, yet it’s inextricably tied to tackling climate change.
Understanding the challenges that face the natural world and their implications has become important for investors seeking to be positioned well for the long-term. To address this emergent knowledge gap, Reuters Events has partnered with Allianz Global Investors to publish a whitepaper addressing how investors may chart their path towards solutions that may protect our natural capital.
Contributors with expertise on the critical implications of biodiversity loss, and the powerful role capital markets can play have shared their views with us. Gain insights from WWF International, European Investment Bank, the UN World Food Programme, and Ceres.
