In his keynote address to the Finance for Nature Virtual Global Series today, Olaf Sleijpen said: “The loss of diversity in nature, just as climate change, poses a major threat to the financial sector, the economy, to prosperity and indeed to our daily lives. We cannot afford to ignore it.” He spoke about the DNB-PBL report ‘Indebted to nature’ and he emphasized the importance that financial firms identify,  manage and report the exposure of their portfolios to biodiversity risks.
