Nagoya 2010: demystifying materiality: hardwiring biodiversity and ecosystem services into finance

0

Biodiversity and ecosystems are crucial for understanding how the world's natural capital is linked to financial markets. A press conference hosted by the UNEP Finance Initiative will discuss 'The Next Challenge: The role of financial institutions in accounting for biodiversity and ecosystems services'. The event will also see the launch of a CEO Briefing booklet that makes the business case for integrating biodiversity into financial operations. The CEO Briefing includes perspectives from leading finance executives. Post-crisis, the finance sector needs to understand systemic risk in a more holistic and genuine way ? today more than ever.

UNEP Finance Initiative Co-Chair Richard Burrett:

'This CEO Briefing underscores the critical natural capital that underpins our economic activity and financial capital. As the finance sector we need to ensure that we operationalise this thinking in the management of investment and lending activities. The CEO Briefing shows why this is the case'
