Biodiversity: understanding nature-related risks and the economics of biodiversity (Recording available)
April 27, 2021 @ 8:30 am – 10:00 am BST
Business and nature are inextricably connected, and a disturbance to biodiversity has serious consequences for companies, their bottom line and the larger environment in which they operate.
Although the level of dependency varies by industry, biodiversity loss is an acute risk for all. Many businesses are aware of this and beginning to take action. Knowing how to measure, understand and act on the nature-related risks to business and value chains remains a challenge.
Consider the findings of the ‘Economics of Biodiversity – The Dasgupta Review’ and how companies can identify and mitigate their highest nature-related risks. By recognising these, thinking ahead and focusing on solutions, companies can create opportunities to build a more resilient business, which can deliver strong financial and social returns.
