Harnessing the power of investment to accelerate a nature positive future

The world has woken up to the vital role that nature plays in supporting our economy and society. With more than half of our global GDP dependent on the natural world, 1 we believe that the reality is stark: nature risk is fast becoming an integral factor to investment risk and returns. That’s why we regard the consideration of nature risk to be part of our fiduciary duty to clients. At the same time, preserving and restoring nature can make a powerful contribution to efforts to mitigate climate change. And there is a social dimension too: unless efforts to protect nature create positive social impacts for local citizens and indigenous communities, they won’t be sustainable over the medium to long term. The direction of travel for businesses is clearer than ever: our global economy must become not just net zero, but also nature positive – and one is dependent on the other.
