Natural capital: nature based solutions

In the first episode of our natural capital podcast Rachel Richardson, Nicole Mitchell and David Short, partner at Lux Nova Partners discuss nature based solutions, public policy changes, funding, how to measure biodiversity net gain and what the future might be for nature based solutions.

To date, the focus of business, regulators and financial market participants towards the E of ESG has to a great extent been on climate, reducing emissions and setting net zero targets. However, we are seeing a complimentary shift of focus developing towards nature and out of this, nature based solutions.

Nature based solution is a land-based project which will lead to nature recovery, habitat restoration and will often involve improving watercourses. It may even cover re-wilding in terms of introducing species or even regenerative farming, David Short at Lux Nova.
