Embedding biodiversity in financial decision making

Integrating Finance and Biodiversity for a Nature Positive Future is a £7 million programme co-led by NERC and Innovate UK to develop the solutions needed to embed the values of biodiversity in financial decision making. This investment will build a national multi-stakeholder community that can drive the development of knowledge, tools and skills to incorporate biodiversity-related risks and opportunities into planning, reporting and investment decisions for the finance and business sectors.

Phase II funding was announced in March 2024.
