Impact investing is emerging as a powerful way of delivering financial returns while also tackling the world’s biggest social and environmental challenges.

However, there is intense debate as to how impact investing can be effective when implemented via listed assets – and challenges remain, such as the low availability of clearly defined key performance indicators and the lack of industry-agreed impact investing standards in listed assets.

This webinar will address some of these issues – looking at how pension schemes can make an impact on biodiversity by allocating to listed impact investment strategies through allocation to impact leaders and a programme of focused investor engagement.

It will also look at how to measure the impact of biodiversity and assess the metrics that can be used to assess the performance of such strategies.
