Biodiversity and finance
What is conservation finance?
The conservation finance space focuses on creating new, long-term and diversified sources of revenue to protect the natural world. Conservation finance can play an important role in making sure that biodiversity is preserved on land and water and in protecting the health of natural ecosystems. In our role as a global bank, we can act to address biodiversity loss through our role as an intermediary between the economy, the environment and society.
The business case for investing in biodiversity
Biodiversity loss is extremely serious and poses huge risks to financial markets. More than half the world's GDP is moderately or highly dependent on nature and its services, according to the World Economic Forum.
