On September 16 Swesif held a webinar on Biodiversity and Finance with focus on ‘Why’ and ‘What’. A thorough introduction on what the science tells us about the importance of biodiversity and its role for the real economy as well as investors and shorter statements to highlight ongoing and emerging initiatives to address the biodiversity issue in the financial sector lead to a discussion on the role of the investors, challenges and action to be taken.
Presentations were made by
Beatrice Crona, The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences & Stockholm Resilience Centre
Gustav Engström and Johan Gars, Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics
Anne-Marie Bor, Finance for Biodiversity pledge
Magnus Emfel, representing WWF in Taskforce for Nature-related Financial Disclosures
Gemma James, PRI Principles for Responsible Investment
Moderator was Åsa Moberg, Swesif and Mistra.
