IMPACT

Investing in nature based solutions contributes towards 6 of the Sustainable Development Goals:

Businesses must innovate and align their business models with nature, by replenishing resources used, decreasing use of water, and operating with a local geographic scope.

Consumers can force businesses and politicians to change. Investments can be in impact-focused branding and advocacy platforms as well as sustainable businesses.

Nature based solutions offer a direct solution for climate change, building in nature’s own defence mechanism to mitigate the negative effects of climate change.

Preventing depletion of fish and ensuring that water pollution is limited, if not eradicated, are some ways life below water can thrive naturally.

More than any other investment theme, this relies on collaboration across all SDGs to accelerate climate solutions. Upsetting any part of nature’s balance can have unintended consequences.
