CleanTechIQ – Impax’s Senior Vice President for Sustainable Investing, Julie Gorte, is quoted in this two part series about biodiversity investing measurement.
Managers and investors are gaining access to a growing set of tools to help them invest to protect biodiversity. But there is still quite a bit of improvement needed, according to experts. Whether it means shareholder engagement or direct investments in biodiversity-related programs, this new form of focused investment brings with it many challenges. A key one – one that is starting to get solutions from the investment community – is just how exactly does an investor measure biodiversity?
At Impax, we have incorporated biodiversity into our Impax Sustainability Lens proprietary tool, designed to categorize the risks and opportunities in each industry as they pertain to the transition to a more sustainable economy.
