About the Pledge

Pledge signatories call on global leaders and commit to protecting and restoring biodiversity through their finance activities and investments by:

  1. Collaborating and sharing knowledge
  2. Engaging with companies
  3. Assessing impact
  4. Setting targets
  5. Reporting publicly on the above*
*For Pledge signatories that committed before 2024, report publicly in 2025 (with 2024 data)
For Pledge signatories that committed in 2024, report publicly in 2027 (with 2026 data)


Extension of the implementation window for new Pledge signatories 

Financial institutions that sign the Pledge after 2024 will have two years to implement and report on the Pledge commitments. This extension is intended to encourage more financial institutions to join the biodiversity movement, offering them more time to meet the Pledge commitments and to become FfB members, engage with working groups, and collaborate on biodiversity initiatives.

Signing the Pledge

Any financial institution can sign the Pledge by completing the registration form. We organize several new signatory launching moments per year. Upon signing the Pledge, your organisation can also become a member of the Foundation and be active in one or more working groups.
