We need to talk about biodiversity | How to engage with corporates?

Presented by

UNEP FI, Finance for Biodiversity Foundation, EU Finance@Biodiversity Community and PRI

About this talk

Designed for institutional investors, this webinar highlights best practices and offers guidance on why and how to engage with companies on biodiversity. Discover a new guide on engaging with companies, created with investors and building on best practices learned. It is published by the Finance for Biodiversity Foundation and the EU Finance@Biodiversity Community. The webinar will also explore the Nature and Biodiversity Benchmark process, created by the World Benchmarking Alliance, and designed to measure and track corporate performance towards a nature-positive future by measuring how companies are reducing their impact and even regenerating ecosystems. Financial institutions’ impact on global biodiversity levels is largely caused by the companies they finance or invest in. Engaging with these companies is an important strategy to reverse biodiversity loss. This is why ‘engaging with companies’ is one of the five commitments outlined in the Finance for Biodiversity Pledge.

United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) is a partnership between United Nations Environment and the global financial sector created in the wake of the 1992 Earth Summit with a mission to promote sustainable finance. More than 240 financial institutions, including banks, insurers, and investors, work with UN Environment to understand today’s environmental, social and governance challenges, why they matter to finance, and how to actively participate in addressing them. UNEP FI’s work also includes a strong focus on policy – by facilitating country-level dialogues between finance practitioners, supervisors, regulators and policy-makers, and, at the international level, by promoting financial sector involvement in processes such as the global climate negotiations.
