“Mitigating the impact of biodiversity loss...requires a fundamental shift in economic thought.”
World Economic Forum¹
Even as people begin to develop solutions to climate change, these often fail to incorporate nature and its resources - putting half the world’s GDP at risk.²
Nature based solutions highlight the role of nature itself to restore ecological balance in the world.
The market opportunity
Nature-based solutions present an annual $10 trillion opportunity globally.⁶
Through our systems-based investment approach, we take a holistic view to investing in nature-based solutions - from ecosystem restoration and conservation, to sustainable use of resources and production of consumer goods.

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.
Sustainable farming practices and hygienic animal rearing practices are examples of nature based solutions that promote wellbeing for all on land.
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.
