Conference urged to ‘work with nature, not against it’ on second day of Sustainable Finance Week

Attendees at the second and final conference day of Sustainable Finance Week were urged to embrace their inner David Attenborough as the day’s discussions focused on biodiversity.
The session began with a no-punches-pulled keynote speech from Dr Gemma Cranston, Executive Director of Pollination Group.
She began with some sobering statistics on biodiversity loss – 83% of wild mammals have been lost due to human degradation, an estimated one million animals have gone extinct due to human activity and $44 trillion, the estimated total economic value of nature on an annual basis.

Rewilding the environment and carbon offsets dominate discussions on first day of Sustainable Finance Week   

Funnelling capital into nature-positive projects that work with, not against, nature was one of the strong themes that emerged on the first conference day of Sustainable Finance Week.   
The conference began with a keynote from financier and environmentalist Ben Goldsmith, who asserted that rewilding – restoring land to its natural, uncultivated state – should become an asset class, adding that there is a strong economic case to be made for doing so.
“Solutions that run with the grain of nature are often cheaper, more durable, they work,” he said.
