Following the UN Biodiversity Conference that began in October 2021 (CBD COP-15), new goals were set for the preservation of our natural world. At last, the biodiversity crisis is moving out of the shadow of climate change with which it is interlinked. It’s not a moment too soon, as the pressure on our ecosystems is increasing exponentially.

It has therefore, never been more important for investors to play a role in protecting and promoting the world’s natural capital. Can we imagine our Earth without biodiversity? Indeed, what will happen if we continue to underestimate all that nature provides us with?

Join our experts at the annual Sustainable Investing Forum to discuss this topic in depth.
