Presented by

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

About this talk

Data and analytics will play a fundamental role in helping companies and financial institutions to identify, manage and report on nature-related risks and opportunities. But which data is publicly available and how to use it? In this webinar, we present the findings from the recently released report ‘Nature in a Haystack: Leveraging public nature-related data in disclosure frameworks’ which identifies the availability and suitability of publicly available nature-related data to support financial decision-making in five case-study countries, learning from previous work done by the UNDP on how to use publicly available nature data in the interface between the private sector and regulatory frameworks on ESG issues. The Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) will also share their approach to data challenges, and present their landscape assessment on data availability. We will then speak with two data providers - MSCI and CDC Biodiversité on what their approaches and solutions are. Speakers will include: - Bex Gottlieb, Data Scientist, Digital Transformation, UNEP-WCMC - James D'Ath, Data and Analytics Technical Lead, Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) - Arne Klug, Vice President, ESG Research, MSCI - Violette Pradère, Project Officer, Global Biodiversity Score for Financial Institutions, CDC Biodiversité The session will be moderated by Romie Goedicke, Project & Technical Manager, Nature, UNEP FI.

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.
