This event brings together a panel of speakers to discuss how the finance sector needs to end portfolio exposure to deforestation and scale finance to nature-positive opportunities. Through first hand accounts from those leading the way towards zero-deforestation portfolios, attendees will gain insights into the mounting risks of inaction, the most impactful strategies, tools and data, and the connectivity between leading investor nature-related initiatives. They will also learn about efforts to create an enabling policy environment, how to best make sense of new standards and regulations, and what is needed from policy-makers to drive more ambitious action. Table discussions will allow practitioners to brainstorm how to overcome the barriers to delivering deforestation-free finance.
