This report was being finalized at the same time as the Biodiversity COP15 in Montreal was underway – setting the stage for a ‘Paris moment’ for nature with the adoption of goals to halt and reverse global biodiversity loss. The report serves as an important reminder that nature is also blue, and that targets for ocean protection are critical along those to protect terrestrial ecosytems. The past two years of collaboration on the Making Oceans Count project, led by the GDFA with asset managers and asset owners in the Nordic countries has uncovered an increasing appetite to understand how portfolio allocations impact ocean biodiversity, both negatively and positively.
