INSIGHT by the ICGN
In our January 2023 Viewpoint, Biodiversity as Systemic Risk, the International Corporate Governance Network (ICGN) advances 10 “game-changers” — concepts, processes, strategies and legal regimes — for addressing the profound and immediate risks to corporations and investors presented by biodiversity loss. This game-changers Viewpoint also includes an extensive list of questions that investor stewardship teams may consider posing when engaging companies on biodiversity loss.
Recognising that for many investors biodiversity represents a new set of risks that have yet to be identified and assessed for further action, ICGN offers this Biodiversity Action Toolkit. It is published as a companion to the Viewpoint and is designed to: (1) highlight the tools investment institutions can draw upon in order to better understand their risk exposure; and (2) identify the main stewardship opportunities for mitigating these risks.
