How to measure and manage your company’s impact on global biodiversity

Sign up for this event

Are you eager to learn more about biodiversity loss and find ways to address biodiversity impacts in your company? We invite Chapter Zero members and non-executive directors to join us for an event in collaboration with Heidrick & Struggles Board Practice and The Natural History Museum.

Biodiversity loss is as great a threat to our planet as climate change. Yet while companies and investors have signed off sophisticated strategies for transitioning to net zero, the biodiversity challenge remains relatively overlooked.

However, change is underway. Companies are increasingly realising the importance of including nature and biodiversity in their climate strategies, and new legislation is driving biodiversity higher up the agenda - most notably via the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) framework.

The Natural History Museum is home to some of the world’s most extensive data on global biodiversity, namely the Biodiversity Intactness Index, a vital information resource available to finance and investment professionals via Bloomberg.

During the event, Doug Gurr, Director of The Natural History Museum, will discuss and answer questions on how the Museum’s data and analytics can support non-executive directors as they seek strategies for change in the boardroom.

Following this, there will be a drinks reception and an opportunity to network with fellow non-executive directors with shared interests and challenges on this topic.

This event is tailored for Chapter Zero Members and non-executive directors. Spaces are limited; RSVP at your earliest convenience to secure your place.
