Addressing nature and climate solutions in an integrated way can be seen as a fundamental risk management approach. By integrating biodiversity into climate change activities, financial institutions aim to address both themes in an efficient way, helping them to minimise resources while increasing positive impacts. But the integration of biodiversity into climate change requires an in-depth understanding of how the two topics are linked and interplay with each other in regard to synergies and trade-offs, the so-called nexus.

This webinar, which took place on Wednesday, 13 December 2023, is aimed at banks, institutional investors and insurers at the beginning of their journey in addressing nature loss. It explores how nature is connected to climate change and finance, along with key concepts and initiatives. It gives recommendations on including nature into existing climate change frameworks and approaches and discusses how financial institutions can start implementing the TNFD framework.
