Tackling biodiversity loss in our natural world is a major challenge and urgent new focus for governments, businesses and society. The Investment, Market and Macro Research, and ESG Integration & Solutions teams at Generali Insurance Asset Management dive into what investors need to know about this increasingly important investment driver and how to distinguish biodiversity-related risks and opportunities.

- A landmark UN biodiversity agreement seeks to significantly leverage private finance to achieve new global targets to protect 30% of land and 30% of costal and marine areas by 2030.
- The biodiversity risk premium will increase, so integrating biodiversity criteria into investment processes is crucial.
- As company reporting on biodiversity is inconsistent and sparse, ESG engagement is the best tool for asset managers to identify the future industry leaders in the sustainable transition, and help improve laggards.
