Unearthing investor action on biodiversity
Biodiversity is of increasing focus in 2021 as the world recognises that without significant steps towards change, it is losing animal and plant species at an alarming rate. However, are investors taking action to manage biodiversity risks and are they able to make investments supporting nature and wildlife? How confident are they in this area?
With around half of the world’s GDP highly or moderately dependent on nature, it is evident that biodiversity is an issue investors should engage with. Our survey of leading global asset managers and asset owners provides new insight into investor interest, understanding and efforts to address biodiversity in their portfolios and strategies.
This research project explores the extent to which investors are tackling biodiversity risks and the impacts of their investments on biodiversity. It also seeks to highlight what is needed to accelerate private investments towards conserving nature.
