Annelisa leads UNEP-WCMC’s work with the private sector focusing on the provision of data and insights to private sector decision makers. UNEP-WCMC specialises in the provision of data to decision makers and is working with governments around the world to provide guidance on natural capital assessments. UNEP-WCMC is working with the Natural Capital Coalition to explore the data needs and challenges companies face in undertaking natural capital assessments and how these can best be met. Through Proteus – a partnership with 12 mining and oil and gas companies – UNEP-WCMC provides access to data and technical support to better integrate biodiversity into development decisions.
Annelisa has more than 20 years’ experience advising companies and civil society on the business risks and opportunities associated with biodiversity and ecosystem services and approaches to managing them with a focus on the mining, oil and gas and finance sectors. Annelisa was previously the Director of Corporate Affairs, and Director of Environmental Markets with Fauna & Flora International before spending six years as an independent environmental consultant.
