  • Evaluation of corporate disclosures on important biodiversity indicators
  • Impact assessment of biodiversity-related controversies

Biodiversity Loss: An Investor Concern

The intricate link between biodiversity and climate change, with wetlands, oceans, and forests playing a critical role in absorbing atmospheric CO2 emissions, has gained recognition within the regulatory market. This is evident with the emergence of biodiversity-specific regulations, investor coalitions, and frameworks that are calling for increased transparency on biodiversity-related portfolio performance.
