The Natural Value Initiative has four broad objectives, to:
- • Build awareness of corporate dependence on ecosystem services and impact on biodiversity and the links to corporate risk;
- • Build expertise both in companies and investors on evaluating and managing biodiversity and ecosystem services (BES) risks and opportunities;
- • Stimulate improved performance within the private sector and encourage greater reward of responsible behaviour;
- • Mainstream biodiversity and ecosystem services (BES) into investment analysis.
