Experts from diﬀerent stakeholder groups met to discuss how ﬁnancial institutions can measure biodiversity impacts and dependencies.
The participants included representatives from academia, data providers, NGOs, and ﬁnancial institutions.
There were two speciﬁc aims:
To build connections between diﬀerent groups working on biodiversity, who are currently operating in silos.
To illuminate the challenges facing ﬁnancial institutions when integrating biodiversity considerations into their investment decisions.
Three questions were discussed and debated in detail:
Are the existing biodiversity measurement techniques being used by ﬁnancial institutions driving the real-world outcomes we need to see?
Is new biodiversity-related regulation supporting the outcomes we need to see?
What does nature-positive investment look like?
