FoSDA Relaunches Biodiversity Working Group

The Future of Sustainable Data Alliance (FoSDA) has relaunched its working group on biodiversity and nature finance. The working group will be chaired by Christopher Perceval, Senior Market Engagement Director at S&P Global Sustainable1.

The working group will focus on enhancing awareness around biodiversity and nature finance, data availability and highlighting the most important forward-looking areas. This will be achieved through conducting research, engaging with experts in the field and publishing commentary papers and reports that highlight the most critical issues.

“The working group seeks to support the ambitions and targets set out in the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework. We will explore latest thinking and current developments in areas of financial and corporate disclosure, transformation of food systems, biodiversity markets, sovereign risk, trade-offs and synergies at the nexus of climate and nature, emerging regulations, and what does an optimized investment to drive ‘nature positive’ outcomes mean in practice.”

The Working Group already  includes representatives from Clarity AI, Moody’s, SIX, CDP, Climate Bonds Initiative and the City of London. In 2022, the working group was led by Bloomberg and published its special paper on biodiversity and natural capital datasets ahead of the UN Biodiversity Conference (COP15). The paper provided an overview of the current state of data availability, as well as the gaps that need to be addressed in order to meet future data requirements.
