NA100 will be an investor-led initiative that engages with companies and policymakers deemed to be systemically important to the goal of reversing nature loss by 2030. With the UN Biodiversity Conference (COP 15) coming up this year, NA100 aims to stimulate action from the financial sector and support the implementation of the Global Biodiversity Framework.
Bess Joffe, Head of Responsible Investment for the Church Commissioners for England, said:
“As a founding partner, we are excited to support the new joint engagement initiative Nature Action 100 as it becomes a force in the market, challenging issues relating to the care of nature and encouraging biodiversity. Nature Action 100 fits perfectly with our ‘Respect for the Planet’ commitments and we would urge other investors to join us in this venture.”
