The business case for biodiversity & ecosystem services is not just about conserving endangered species. It is becoming an issue of global policy that the benefits provided by biodiversity are valued and accounted for within traditional business risk frameworks. This report, developed by UNEP FI’s Biodiversity & Ecosystem Services Work stream (BESW) provides direction for financial institutions that wish to manage biodiversity & ecosystem service risks more effectively. It also illustrates how opportunities and tools for financial products and services can be developed.
