3 Informative Insights from the Webinar on Biodiversity: From Risk to Impact

Navigating Biodiversity: Embark on a journey of discovery, measurement, reaction, and integration to prevent biodiversity loss. 

Get ready for a quick recap of our recent webinar on biodiversity, where we explored the steps organisations need to take to positively contribute to their biodiversity impact. The aim of the webinar was to provide valuable guidance on adopting an impact-centered approach and to inspire organisations to start planning their impact journey – ultimately empowering organisations on the path to become nature positive. 

Strategic importance of biodiversity 

Biodiversity stands as the foundation of life on Earth, intertwined with the well-being of our planet, society, and economy. Despite its vital importance, biodiversity has faced an alarming decline of nearly 70% over the past 50 years, according to the WWF Living Planet Report 2022. 

With more than half of the world’s economy dependent on nature’s services, biodiversity loss can significantly disrupt business operations and poses physical, transitional and reputational risks. Furthermore, it is a rapidly emerging topic in policy and regulation agendas. Businesses and financial institutions play a pivotal role in addressing this loss and fostering sustainability. 

Where to start when assessing the biodiversity impact of my financial activities?  

For most, starting to understand biodiversity impacts is a daunting challenge. Without accurate information, financial institutions struggle in moving from risk to impact.  

Our expertise lies in guiding organisations through biodiversity impact measurement and analysis, providing invaluable support in this complex endeavor. 

“In our work we move across top-down and bottom-up models to approach the biodiversity impact and risk measurement topic, highlighting how such tools fit into a wider impact journey and into international standards”
