Our roadmap to addressing biodiversity loss

Biodiversity loss entails physical, transition and systemic risks for investors. That is why BNP Paribas Asset Management believes it is essential to integrate biodiversity into its approach to sustainable investing including reporting on its water and forest footprints and developing common biodiversity metrics.

In our new white paper, Sustainable by nature: our biodiversity roadmap, we set out a number of areas for accelerated action. They include integrating biodiversity into our engagement with companies, organisations and policymakers and our approach to responsible business conduct. We will also seek to further investor understanding of biodiversity issues and give more visibility to nature and learning how to better account for it in nature-related financial disclosures.

Investors seeking opportunities in the area of biodiversity loss related solutions can find well-measured, diverse and transparent thematic investment strategies such as those developed by BNP Paribas Asset Management. Our current thinking is detailed in Sustainable by nature: our biodiversity roadmap.

For more on the challenges and opportunities that biodiversity loss presents and the BNPP AM biodiversity roadmap, watch the video with Jane Ambachtsheer.

The value of investments and the income they generate may go down as well as up and it is possible that investors will not recover their initial outlay.

Investing in emerging markets, or specialised or restricted sectors is likely to be subject to a higher-than-average volatility due to a high degree of concentration, greater uncertainty because less information is available, there is less liquidity or due to greater sensitivity to changes in market conditions (social, political and economic conditions).

Some emerging markets offer less security than the majority of international developed markets. For this reason, services for portfolio transactions, liquidation and conservation on behalf of funds invested in emerging markets may carry greater risk
