Investing in Biodiversity: A Butterfly Effect?16h30 - 17h00
Conference Room 4
After having presented (the roadmap to developing) specific Biodiversity investment strategies in the 15h00 session, both Robeco and Tocqueville will now speak about the theme in a more holistic way. Both firms agree and stress that taking into account and evaluating the risks and impacts of our activities on biodiversity is essential. As citizens and investors we can redirect capital flows to companies with good practices and away from those whose activities contribute to the erosion of biodiversity. The question now is how can we measure progress in our efforts to combat Biodiversity loss and what role engagement activities could play in the process?
Investing in Biodiversity: Reducing Risk or Seizing the Opportunity?15h00 - 15h30
Conference Room 2
Biodiversity is all around us: food, water, fibers, timber, or medicines, are all ecosystem services provided by nature. And without them, our society and economy as we know it, would not be possible. Combining restoration of nature and investment is a $10.1trn annual business opportunity in the coming years. In this joint session, Robeco and Tocqueville will discuss how they have designed their respective investment solutions focused on this theme and how they are able to seize the multi-trillion business opportunity that arises from it. Strategies that will create both wealth and well-being.
