Sixth update of the overview of initiatives
18 December – The Finance for Biodiversity Foundation launches the sixth update of the Overview of initiatives for financial institutions on biodiversity. The timeframe of the initiative’s projects is now changed to the period 2023-2024. In this update, one new initiative was added to the overview: Nature Action 100.
Overview of initiatives
The Overview of initiatives for financial institutions is meant to help financial institutions find their way amongst the initiatives that work on the intersection between biodiversity and finance. It was launched in April 2021 by the Business & Biodiversity Platform, Finance for Biodiversity Foundation, UNEP FI, and the PRI. In this fourth update, one new initiative was added to the overview: Nature Action 100.
The overview now covers 19 finance and biodiversity initiatives in total. Other relevant updates include new activities on positive impact methodologies, by B4B+ Club and by the Consortium for Biodiversity Footprint. Furthermore, the update includes recent publications from most of the included initiatives.
As the biodiversity movement is developing rapidly, we aim to continue updating the Overview of initiatives every year. Feedback and input to be included in the next updates of these documents can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org (Finance workstream Lead under the EU Business & Biodiversity Platform).
