Biodiversity loss is a global risk to the economy and society. Many questions are being raised about its connection with the current Covid-19 crisis. Ecosystem services are worth US$ 125-140 trillion per year – more than 1.5 times of global GDP.
Yet according to the OECD, between 1997 and 2011, the world lost an estimated US$ 4-20 trillion per year to land cover change, including deforestation, and US$ 6-11 trillion per year to land degradation.
Join The Future of Sustainable Data Alliance for a webinar on Wednesday 27 May 2020, where we will discuss the economic impact of biodiversity loss, and how to leverage data to create a more sustainable investment portfolio.
