Biodiversity: The neglected existential risk

Biodiversity will become one the largest investment megatrends in our lives, and the theme is at an inflection point 

Biodiversity: The neglected existential risk

Much of the investment industry’s rhetoric is about capital – whether that’s financial, produced, human or social. But we have long neglected the other crucial resource: natural capital

In the past, participants in the global economy have taken nature for granted, viewing it as a perpetual resource. But evidence emphatically shows that nature is degrading fast as a result of human activity. 

While investors, companies and policymakers have in recent years focussed on climate change and its devastating effects on the world, they are also growing more aware of our impact and dependence on nature and the existential risk that biodiversity loss poses to us.
