Providing investors with dynamic data will help define the impact on both natural capital assets and dependencies on ecosystem services.
This will be crucial for the future of our planet. In his recent HM Treasury commissioned review ‘The Economics of Biodiversity’, Professor Sir Partha Dasgupta stated that when considering this topic, it becomes a study in portfolio management, and we must approach it as asset managers.
Today, nature is under-priced and under-valued. The best that each of us can achieve with our current portfolios will result in a collective failure. However, if biodiversity is viewed as a portfolio of natural assets, there will be increased resilience against the impact of shock.
This co-creation workshop will detail how science-based data can augment traditional risk systems to provide insights for the sustainable financing of natural capital.
$47 trillion of capital has been pledged to sustainable finance and supporting outcomes aligned to sustainability and impact goals.
This huge volume of capital is only trickling from behind a dam created by uncertainty from lack of data, taxonomies, schemas, reporting and products, robust enough to satisfy the risk register of financial institutions. The result is a lack of confidence about viable options for investing in sustainable initiatives.
Finextra Research and ResponsibleRisk will be running a thought-provoking series of editorial, research and experiential events to bring banking and technology ecosystems together and to collaborate on enabling this wave of change.
