Digital summit: Measuring the Impact of Investments on Biodiversity

12 Dec 2019

Bending the curve on our current biodiversity crisis is key to sustainable land use and a healthy planet. In doing so, the private sector will play a crucial role and it must invest on biodiversity. Measuring impact from those investments requires that there are agreed upon methodologies and terminology to familiarize the financial sector with biodiversity in support of higher commitment to action. This Digital Summit will follow up on and discuss the outcomes of the upcoming GLF Luxembourg on 30th November.

This conference on Sustainable Finance will tackle key questions such as, “How should positive impacts on biodiversity be defined? Can reducing negative impacts on biodiversity be considered as a positive impact? How should financial institutions’ s report on these impacts and how to reach a ‘net-positive-gain’? Furthermore, what baseline should be used to measure impact, a pristine situation or a situation which operates within the planetary boundaries?” #thinklandscape
