31 responses regarding the consultation ‘Biodiversity issues and approaches’

The Impact Assessment working group received 31 responses regarding the consultation on their working document about biodiversity issues and approaches. These responses, mainly from financial institutions and a few consultants and NGOs, provided interesting insights into the way the finance sector is dealing with biodiversity measurement.

The goal of the consultation was to get a better understanding of biodiversity issues and available approaches in order to allow financial institutions to integrate the knowledge into their financial decisions and tackle the biodiversity crisis effectively. Read more here on the background of the consultation.

A subgroup will use this feedback in a guide on the current state of biodiversity approaches for financial institutions that will be developed by the working group in the coming months. The aim is to publish the consultation results and the guide in early March.
