ESG Webinars: Exploring deforestation

Presented by

Joe Horrocks Taylor, Biodiversity & Climate specialist and Tom Barron, Senior Associate, Responsible Investment

About this talk

In this webinar we’ll explore the key drivers of deforestation and explain why it’s a financially material risk for investors. We’ll profile our deforestation risk management tool and introduce our related engagement project. We’ll also reflect on a recent trip to Brazil during which we engaged with corporates linked to ecosystem degradation, met with government ministries, and visited agricultural producers on the Amazon deforestation frontier.
