UNEP-WCMC report on biodiversity and the finance sector

The United Nations Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) issued a publication regarding biodiversity and the finance sector: "'Beyond 'Business as Usual': Biodiversity Targets and Finance. Managing biodiversity risks across business sectors".

The report gives advice on how financial institutions can integrate biodiversity into their activities. This will affect other sectors as well and makes the report interesting for a wider audience. Amongst others the report recommends target setting for the following priority sub-industries (in alphabetical order): 1) Agricultural Products, 2) Apparel, Accessories & Luxury Goods, 3) Brewers, 4) Distribution, 5) Electric Utilities, 6) Independent Power Producers & Energy Traders, 7) Mining, 8) Oil & Gas Exploration & Production, 9) Oil & Gas Storage & Transportation.
