UNEP Finance Initiative presented UNEP projects with a focus on financing mechanisms for biodiversity and sustainable development at the recent Corporate Responsibility Network FIBS and the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). Hosted by the Finnish Ministry of the Environment in Helsinki, the two day event brought together international biodiversity experts to foster an exchange knowledge of companies’ latest practices on business and biodiversity. The forum aimed to broaden knowledge regarding the central role corporations play in protecting biodiversity and deepen companies’ understanding of business opportunities connected to biodiversity and the risks associated with biodiversity loss.
