Businesses depend on the environment to provide direct and indirect inputs that enable their production processes. The consequences of the increasing pressure being placed on ecosystems for the financial sector as providers of capital for companies and citizens can be substantial, resulting in potentially material risks for financial stability. Understanding dependencies on natural capital will allow sectors to make better-informed decisions.
During this session, leading financial institutions will share their views on the importance of integrating social and natural capital risks and opportunities in the decision-making process.
