Some important take-aways: 

  • 5 of the 9 planetary boundaries (thresholds within which humanity can survive, develop and thrive for future generations) have been crossed
  • As awareness of the key drivers of biodiversity loss has risen, so have regulatory and industry efforts to tackle the problem
  • We identified four main long-term biodiversity protection opportunities for listed equity investors: sustainable materials, land and animal preservation, water ecosystems and recycling/recirculation
  • Obtaining measurable data for biodiversity loss has been identified as a key challenge, but Iceberg Data Lab and other leading providers are helping to increase the availability, variety and specific metrics that are accessible to businesses
  • Emerging regulation and possible reporting implications for pension schemes, such as the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD)
