Nature's lack of visibility in our financial system means that it is being destroyed at an alarming rate. The resulting collapse in ecosystems and biodiversity presents an existential risk to the economy without urgent action.
There is a pressing need for organizations to identify their nature-related impacts, dependencies, risks and opportunities, embed them into their decision-making processes, and disclose and report on their progress. Finance leaders can play a crucial part in this work and the move towards a nature positive global economy.
