Beyond climate: biodiversity and nature
To achieve climate mitigation and environmental protection, and avoid ecological disaster, it is crucial to look beyond climate at biodiversity and ecosystem loss. This panel will discuss the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures, the need for financial institutions to consider all environmental risk, reporting frameworks and the need to move financial flows away from nature-negative outcomes.
The roundtable will take place during the OMFIF Sustainable Policy Institute symposium: ‘Revolutionising finance for net zero’. Registering for this roundtable will also grant you access to the symposium. You can see the full line up and agenda here.
