“The financial sector and the asset management industry in which we sit have a crucial role to play in helping to prevent further biodiversity loss,” says Peter van der Werf, Senior Manager Engagement at Robeco.
“Our general aim is that within the next few years we will be able to measure and steer on our contribution as an investor to the protection of biodiversity and nature in partnership with WWF-NL and other collaborations such as the Finance for Biodiversity Pledge.”
“The natural world is in crisis: never in human history has biodiversity declined as fast as it is doing so today,” says Aaron Vermeulen, Director Green Finance, WWF-NL.
“Robeco’s internal biodiversity roadmap, captured in its white paper, is a real step forward. It aims to understand and address nature-related impacts and dependencies across its organization. We look forward to collaborating with Robeco to ensure robust implementation.”
