GREEN INVESTMENTS
We helped to shape new EU classifications
that will determine what is, and isn't, a green
investment. The EU " green taxonomy " will
guide public and private investment decisions,
and will be a powerful tool for making the
European economy more sustainable. Green
investments will have to demonstrate that
they're making a substantial contribution to
at least one of the EU's environmental goals -
like mitigating and adapting to climate
change, preventing pollution, preserving and
restoring biodiversity, and building a circular
economy - and doing no significant harm
toward any of them.

ECONOMIC LOSSES COUNTED
New WWF-backed research revealed the
economic impacts on 140 countries if the
world fails to tackle the nature loss crisis.
The Global Futures study showed that
global GDP could lose nearly US$10 trillion
by 2050 if we fail to protect key ecosystem
services such as the provision of fresh water,
timber, pollination, flood protection and
carbon storage. The study, which offers
economic policymakers a new tool to take
account of the value of nature when making
decisions, is now being used by the World
Bank and the UK Treasury.

MEASURING NATURE-RELATED RISKS
While the finance sector increasingly
recognizes the risks of climate change,
financial decisions rarely take full account of
other environmental risks. To fix this, we're
supporting an initiative that will make it easier
for companies and financial institutions to
measure, disclose and manage their naturerelated risks and impacts. Over 60 private
financial institutions, industry organizations
and technical experts are shaping the
foundations of the Task Force for Naturerelated Financial Disclosures, which has
already gained support from the
Peruvian, Swiss and UK governments
and from the Dutch, French

Investment in renewable
energy is central in transitioning to
a low-carbon economy, with solar
panel power generation delivering
the highest employment per unit
of energy produced.
