Evli is participating Nature Action 100, a global investor-led initiative, which focuses on driving greater corporate ambition and action to reduce nature loss. The initiative engages with 100 companies in key sectors that are deemed to be systemically important regarding nature and biodiversity loss.
Nature loss is a material financial risk. Depleting natural capital creates significant near-term operational costs for companies, threatens the supply of critical resources, and puts more than half of global GDP at risk.
Nature Action 100 is working to drive the necessary corporate action to reverse nature loss. A total of 190 investor participants kicked off direct engagement with 100 companies operating in eight key sectors with significant impacts on nature around the world.
“Participating in the Nature Action 100 initiative is a clear continuum of Evli’s work on biodiversity. In addition to researching metrics as well as nature-related dependencies and impacts we see direct company engagement important. As an investor participant of a global investor engagement initiative, we are able to engage with companies on a broader level”, says Evli’s Responsible Investment Senior Analyst Elina Niiranen.
The focus of Nature Action 100 is to encourage companies to take on concrete and necessary corporate actions to reduce nature and biodiversity loss. The initiative started by sending letters to companies and continues with investor participants’ direct engagement on companies either individually or as a part of engagement teams with other participating investors. Investor participants will report to Nature Action 100 on the progress of their engagement.
