As part of the ‘We need to talk about Biodiversity’webinar series, UNEPFI and PRI are delivering the webinar ‘Stepping up on biodiversity: How are investors taking action since COP15?’ which will take place on 18 April, 14:00 – 15:00 CET. Take a look at the Webinar program and Register here.
The UN Biodiversity Conference COP15 adopted the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) in December 2022. The landmark agreement was signed by 196 countries and aims to guide global action on biodiversity and nature.
As biodiversity loss reaches unprecedented rates, the GBF provides a framework for bold action and policy alignment across economic sectors, with a clear call to align public and private financial flows with its goals and targets. In the run-up to COP15, institutional investors showed their strong support for an ambitious and enabling GBF, with over 150 financial institutions - representing over USD 24 trillions of assets under management - signing a statement coordinated by the UNEP Finance Initiative (UNEP FI), Finance for Biodiversity Foundation, and the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).
In this webinar, we will explore the type of actions that leading investors are undertaking to contribute to the goal of the GBF to “halt and reverse biodiversity loss by 2030”, and discuss the wider direction of travel for the financial sector to meet both climate and nature goals.
