Event Summary:

Natural Capital and Biodiversity Loss – why it matters and the potential for the finance sector

What is natural capital? Why must we preserve it? What are the risks and opportunities? How can its value be quantified?

Despite being critical for sustained human social and economic activity, biodiversity and natural capital loss have received less attention than climate change in broader discussions about sustainable finance until recently. Whilst public awareness of natural capital and its significance is growing, the finance sector is still making sense of regulation and how to create fundable projects that also enhance biodiversity targets.

Join us and our host of panellists working across biodiversity and natural capital to understand the opportunities, risks and considerations emerging in this space.
