Demonstrate what works: Better impact monitoring to scale nature-based investments

Plenary Hall

Many corporate and financial investors have adopted net-zero emission targets and biodiversity commitments. However, it is not trivial to ensure compliance in a robust and cost-effective manner, e.g. that agricultural loans do not contribute to deforestation, or to demonstrate that investments increase biodiversity. Impact investors are therefore increasingly demanding impact monitoring tools to ensure that investments generate no harm and provide restoration benefits in terms of enhanced resilience to climate change and biodiversity conservation.
