The financial sector is vulnerable to the loss of biodiversity. This is the conclusion of a collaborative Research of the Dutch Central Bank (DNB) and the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL) on risks for the Dutch financial sector as a consequence of biodiversity loss.

The webinar will be opened with a presentation of the report’s key findings by one of the authors. Then Hans Mommaas (director PBL) and Frank Elderson, (board member DNB and NGFS chairman) will tell you about the importance of biodiversity in international discussions and what supervisors can learn from the climate-related risk agenda, respectively. Finally, Elizabeth Mrema (Executive Secretary Convention on Biological Diversity) will pay special attention to the negotiations for the international biodiversity agreement in Kunming in 2021.
