Large asset managers are increasingly aware of the transformative power that resources allocation can have, positively or negatively, on the environment. The acronym ESG is already a recurring theme in discussions of major investment decisions around the world.
In the environmental sphere, efforts to mitigate CO2 emissions appear at the top of the concerns of companies that are increasingly demanded for transparency and, above all, action.
As stated by this article of Financial Times, the biodiversity protection begins to occupy space and attention of executives leaders. Even though it does not have its value so easily calculated, as is the case of CO2 emission offsetting, the biodiversity preservation is as necessary and urgent as that.
Besides contributing to the environmental balance that influences the climate, the world financial impact that the destruction of natural ecosystems may cause is worrisome, which can leave a loss of US$ 30 trillion until 2050, according to the Global Futures report.
But, if the conservation of biodiversity and the fight against climate change are directly related, is it possible, then, to invest in both at the same time?
This is the case of projects validated and verified by the Verra standard, an organization responsible for developing and managing the most recognized certification methodologies of the international voluntary carbon market:
Biofílica develops REDD+ projects that earned Gold Label for Biodiversity, a certification offered by Verra when the project presents exceptional benefits for Biodiversity, which in these cases are the monitoring and protection of Amazonian species threatened with extinction.
