Moving beyond climate: integrating biodiversity into financial markets

De Nederlandsche Bank and OMFIF’s Sustainable Policy Institute are hosting a one-day conference on the relevance of biodiversity loss for the financial system and financial stability, and the role of public and private finance in the preservation of biodiversity. The loss of biodiversity is considered one of the greatest risks to society and the global economy, as it accelerates climate change and threatens the health of ecosystems that provide services to the economy. Policymakers are incorporating biodiversity loss in disclosure standards, while financial market participants increasingly focus on integrating biodiversity metrics into risk frameworks and investment decisions.
