We need to talk about biodiversity: How to measure biodiversity impact?

Presented by

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

About this talk

Financial institutions want and have to measure their impact on biodiversity to be able to halt and reverse the loss. But how to get started, and what approaches are out there? The EU Business and Biodiversity Platform and its Finance@Biodiversity Community have been assessing and sharing biodiversity measurement approaches since 2017. Together with the Finance for Biodiversity Foundation, a comprehensive Guide on biodiversity measurement approaches was developed in 2021. The Guide provides a starting point for financial institutions that are interested in measuring biodiversity. This webinar will update you on the latest developments and approaches based on the revised edition of the biodiversity measurement Guide that is currently in the making. In addition, the Finance for Biodiversity Foundation Impact Assessment working group will present and discuss the latest insights concerning the consultation they organized. They will provide a sneak preview of the FfB guidance on biodiversity approaches. The webinar allows for a Q&A with the experts. Questions that cannot be answered during the webinar, will be answered in writing afterwards.

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.
