Biodiversity and Finance – Why and What?

In this first Swesif webinar on Biodiversity and Finance the focus will be 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 will lead to a discussion on the role of the investors, challenges and action to be taken. There will be opportunities for the audience to ask questions.
