Together with the EU Finance@Biodiversity Community, the members of the Finance for Biodiversity Foundation are organising a webinar on biodiversity-related policy and regulation that is relevant for financial institutions.

In this webinar, Basile van Havre, Co-Chair of the Open-Ended Working Group of the CBD will give information on the process and draft Post-2020 Biodiversity Framework that has been prepared for the global CBD COP15 negotiation process in October 2021 and April/May 2022. Furthermore, Jean-Christophe Nicaise Chateau, from the European Commission (DG FISMA) and Patrick de Cambourg from the European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG) will update us on the upcoming European reporting requirements that are under development: the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD). This upcoming regulation is relevant for financial institutions because the reporting requirements for companies will influence financial institutions’ engagement and impact assessment efforts.

This webinar on ‘Finance and biodiversity regulation’ is organised by the EU Business and Biodiversity Platform and the Finance for Biodiversity Foundation. It is open to financial institutions and other interested organisations.
