- Rainforests are biodiversity hotspots. When forests are lost or degraded, it sets off a series of changes that affect life both locally and around the world.
- While large-scale farming operations in cleared areas of rainforest are the primary culprit, there is evidence to suggest smaller environmentally-friendly agricultural methods can effectively replace existing commercial practices and be much more sustainable.
- Investors have a significant role to play in the battle against deforestation. Biodiversity Equity engages with portfolio companies with a focus on achieving reportable outcomes, including reversing nature loss and mitigating deforestation.
Engagement case studies in this report include Danish biotech firm Novozymes, Australian pallet maker Brambles and Finnish forestry firm UPM.
