The natural world underpins our economies, with more than 44 trillion USD of economic value generation, half the world’s GDP, moderately or highly dependent on this critical asset. Nature is central to supply chains and raw materials, supporting the businesses we finance, invest in and insure - and yet it is increasingly under threat.
As part of the Sustainable Investment Forum 2021, this session will explore how European investors can move from the case for investing in nature to meeting the conservation finance gap at scale. This shift presents many business opportunities for European investors, with the support of blended finance and strategic public investments in accelerating nature finance.
Joan M. Larrea, CEO of Convergence, will participate on the panel to discuss how blended finance can help accelerate nature finance.
