Sustainable Finance Live - Valuing Nature: Better Assessing Financial Risk

Sustainable Finance Live - Valuing Nature: Better Assessing Financial Risk

A Visual Record from the Sustainable Finance Live workshops 11 - 12 May 2021.

On 11 – 12 May 2021, Finextra and ResponsibleRisk brought together sustainable finance experts to discuss how financial services firms and technology companies can achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

Debunking the myth that revenue cannot be generated through trustworthy implementation of ESG measures, this programme of interactive co-creation workshops targeted a number of sub-sectors within financial services, and spoke to the specific challenges and opportunities through a lean back, lean in and learn model.

The event explored how providing investors with dynamic data can 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.
