About the Pledge
On 25 September 2020, a group of 26 financial institutions from around the globe launched the Finance for Biodiversity Pledge. They called on global leaders and committed to protect and restore biodiversity through their finance activities and investments in the run-up to the Conference of the Parties (COP 15) to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) in 2021. The number of Pledge signatories has grown since then and currently stands at 55. This video features 8 signatory CEOs who presented the Pledge as part of the Nature for Life Hub’s Global Ambition Day on 28 September 2020 in the presence of over 60 world Heads of State.
The accompanying guidance document clarifies each commitment, providing sources from different initiatives, experts and organizations and existing examples from the financial institutions themselves.2.-Finance-for-Biodiversity-Pledge_Guidance_May2021
