Investing in NatureWednesday, November 27thConference & Cocktail
Investing in Nature
Given the scale of today's environmental challenges, the mobilisation of private finance for sustainable land use and so-called ‘Nature Based Solutions’ will be essential to preserve biodiversity and climate. Biodiversity is critical to the sustainability of life on Earth, helping to stabilise the climate, and secure the well-being of human societies. Healthy ecosystems provide shelter, food and medicine, while forests and oceans act as huge carbon sinks. Unfortunately, natural habitats and unique landscapes are being destroyed at an alarming rate, and the cost of inaction is rising. Nature suffers from over-exploitation and underinvestment.
As a result, there is an urgent need to mobilise finance at scale to invest in Nature Based Solutions to the ongoing climate and biodiversity crises.
On the international stage, global responses such as the "New Deal for Nature", including all stakeholders, need to be supported. The private sector has a key role to play, alongside scientists, civil society and governments. The meetings of IPBES in 2019 and IUCN in 2020 in France are intended to accelerate the momentum from the private sector, towards the COP15 of the Convention on Biological Diversity in China in 2020.

A closer look: translating physical climate hazards into financial impactsThursday, November 28thExchange
A closer look: translating physical climate hazards into financial impacts
Financial actors are already exposed to the impacts of climate change on the real economy as illustrated by PG&E’s bankruptcy in early 2019. While financial institutions need to prepare for physical climate risks now, they face a lack of science-based information relevant for their decisions.
*What are the needs of financial institutions to integrate physical climate risks in their decisions? What solutions are already emerging to fill these needs?*
To answer these questions, the European ClimINVEST consortium will share the results of a 2-year collaboration between financial institutions and climate change specialists. The research institutions and partners in the financial sector will explain how they clarified their needs and present their solutions to help integrate physical climate risk in investors’ decisions.
This event is an opportunity for financial practitioners to learn science-based and pragmatic recommendations about what physical climate risk assessment should look like, what kind of scientific information can be used and why, but also pave the way forward.
- Organizer CICERO, I4CE, Carbone 4 and ClimINVEST partners
- Schedule 8:30 - 11:00
