Investors are increasingly seeking to identify companies to engage with on biodiversity. One of the challenges they face is that, despite the growing amount available data, methodologies and metrics used to assess biodiversity impact are still evolving. Tools to measure biodiversity are beginning to gain traction in the market, and there is a manifest need for clarity and guidance. 

This webinar on ‘Tracking top biodiversity impact sectors with footprinting tool collaboration’ held on April 13th 14:00 – 15:00 CET brings the results of the collaborative efforts of four tool providers - led by the FfB Foundation in cooperation with the consultancy Globalbalance. Together they created a biodiversity footprint ranking of companies, industries and sectors by using a multi-tool analysis combining various methodologies in one study. This unique approach helped to bring synergies with the different purposes of the tools, and provided insights on the ‘common ground’ which the tools were able to achieve besides using different approaches.

The webinar will also overview the results of the analysis - highlighting the sectoral impacts of on biodiversity – which are reflected in a briefing paper that will be launched during the webinar. A ranking will be presented allowing investors to identify the sectors with the highest impact on biodiversity and initiate engagement with these.

The webinar will enjoy the presence of the tool providers involved in the analysis, as well as the consultants guiding the study, to give insights on why the study matters to identify high-impact sectors and industries for engagement.
