The conservation of biodiversity is a critical pillar of sustainable development, however biological systems are under threat as a result of human activity. As well as putting people’s health and our ecosystems at risk, a deteriorating environment also poses a significant material risk for investors.
Around $44 trillion of economic value – over 50% of GDP globally – is dependent on nature or nature-related services, and biodiversity remains an emerging issue for Australian businesses and providers of capital who are grappling with how to account for, manage and address nature-related risks.
How can Australian businesses and investors manage impacts on nature and deliver positive outcomes for biodiversity and ecosystems?
Register below for the UN Global Compact Network Australia at this networking evening in Sydney to discuss the concept of biodiversity in the context of enterprise value and learn how businesses and investors can consider their nature-related impacts.
This event will provide an opportunity to network with like-minded organisations as well as connect with members of the UN Global Compact Network Australia team.
