Biodiversity loss entails physical, transition and systemic risks for investors. That is why BNP Paribas Asset Management believes it is essential to integrate biodiversity into its approach to sustainable investing including reporting on its water and forest footprints and developing common biodiversity metrics.
In our new white paper, Sustainable by nature: our biodiversity roadmap, we set out six areas for accelerated action. They include integrating biodiversity into our engagement with companies, organisations and policymakers and our approach to responsible business conduct. We will also seek to further investor understanding of biodiversity issues and give more visibility to nature and learning how to better account for it in nature-related financial disclosures.
Investors seeking opportunities in the area of biodiversity loss related solutions can find well-measured, diverse and transparent thematic investment strategies such as those developed by BNP Paribas Asset Management. Our current thinking is detailed in Sustainable by nature: our biodiversity roadmap.
