About this talk

With nature and biodiversity declining at an unprecedented rate, and developments such as the adoption of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) and the launch of the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) framework, nature topics have been attracting increasing level of attention by the financial sector. Thanks to this, innovations with the ultimate goal of halting and reversing biodiversity loss have been taking place in nature finance. Since 2022, the annual New Green Shoots webinar has been kicking off the new year with a review of the latest innovative nature finance products that have come onto the market. This year, without exception, the webinar will introduce you to the emerging trends in nature finance from the past year, and highlight a few innovative products and mechanisms with high potential to scale the market.

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.
