Infrastructure Investments & Biodiversity Workshops

Biodiversity is deteriorating globally at an unprecedented pace. Policy makers, civil society, businesses, and asset owners are looking to halt, and even reverse, this biodiversity loss. Infrastructure development has been flagged as a high priority sector due to its potential negative impact on biodiversity. Integrating biodiversity into investment decision-making and asset ownership practices is thus becoming increasingly material for infrastructure investors; from both a risk-management and value-creation perspective.

Considering this, the PRI and Global Infrastructure Investor Association (GIIA) are pleased to announce two upcoming workshops covering infrastructure investments and biodiversity.

These workshops aim to encourage peer learning; consisting of a brief presentation by an expert, followed by a structured panel discussion between practitioners.

If you would like to attend, please RSVP below by EOD on Friday 13th January.
