The Natural Capital Finance & Investment Conference is a unique forum that brings together representatives from financial services and stewardship of the natural environment to catalyse the emerging nature-based green finance and investment market in the UK.
The 2021 Conference taking place online on 6th-7th October will bring you the full picture from the fast-emerging UK market. We will showcase the very best of the UK project pipeline and provide an unrivalled networking opportunity.
Natural capital finance has a central role to play in our response to the dual biodiversity and climate crises, with the potential to unlock much needed finance to restore nature’s balance and ability to provide vital ecosystem services for the future.
With the UN’s Biodiversity Conference COP15 and Climate Summit COP26 taking place shortly, this conference is ideally-timed. The UK is emerging as a leader in nature-based finance, heralded by initiatives such as the Scottish Conservation Finance Project and the Natural Environment Investment Readiness Fund for England. Join us to see nature-based finance in action across the UK and understand how you can get involved.
We are delighted to be working with sponsors the Green Finance Institute, The Nature Conservancy and Palladium to bring you the latest insights and best practice from the UK’s natural capital leaders in an exciting programme.
Over 1,000 delegates from 30 countries participated in the third Natural Capital Finance & Investment Conference. We are grateful to over 60 experts who contributed to our online programme. They included speakers from the Green Finance Institute, WWF UK, Finance Earth, Mirova, Nestlé, Wessex Water and SYSTEMIQ to name but a few. We were also delighted to co-host three of six webinars in the Investment Readiness Fund series with the Green Finance Institute on behalf of the Environment Agency and Defra.
