Biodiversity loss is as significant a threat to modern society as the climate crisis. Creating financial solutions to biodiversity is complex but a growing area for private sector engagement. BwB have worked with foundations and several national governments around the world to innovate finance mechanisms that drive biodiversity outcomes. Our work has focused on incentivizing biodiversity protection and stimulus through financing mechanisms, aligning new debt issuance to nature outcomes. This work has the been the catalyst for broader biodiversity projects and financial innovation which BwB are expanding significantly.
