Details

With the development of the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures and acknowledgement that ecological impacts must also be factored in to mitigate climate change, biodiversity is increasingly on the agendas of financial institutions. This panel discussion in collaboration with the World Wide Fund for Nature will examine how the financial sector should integrate biological considerations into their investments, including how to create products to hedge against nature-related and biodiversity risk. Speakers will also touch upon the latest developments in sustainable bonds, risks and opportunities in biodiversity and strategies for how to integrate it into disclosure and risk frameworks.
