Climate Change and Biodiversity Loss: Joint Crises. Twin Crises?

Climate change and biodiversity loss are two of the world’s most pressing issues. Both crises are human made and are often described as twin crises due to the fact that the former impacts the latter. As such, measures used to address one of them will not be well suited to target the remaining one. This finding has direct implications both for policymakers and investors.

In this paper we elaborate on what the main drivers of biodiversity loss are, how they differ from those of climate change, and how investors can measure corporate biodiversity impact through data from our strategic partner Iceberg Data Lab.

Additionally, we elaborate on what these differences imply when it comes to portfolio construction, and how investors can build portfolios with a low biodiversity impact – as well as portfolios with both a low biodiversity and climate change impact.
