About WWF ’s Biodiversity Risk Filter
The Biodiversity Risk Filter allows companies to take a close look at the locations where they are operating or sourcing from, and understand where and how they may be exposed to the highest risks because of the ways that their value chains are impacting nature, or because of how they depend on nature for their profitability. The tool is accompanied by additional guidance to support especially financial institutions in using the tool and to better understand biodiversity- and water-related risks within their portfolios. The guidance explains how financial institutions can use the existing data sources to collect information on company and supply chain sites for a broad universe of companies, and highlights how they can apply the results of the tools to get an overview of risk at the company- and portfolio-level. To show how the Biodiversity Risk Filter can be applied to a portfolio of listed companies with the support of the additional guidance, a case study was conducted and will also be published at the same time as the tool is launched. The session will provide a practical introduction to the Biodiversity Risk Filter tool and the additional guidance, with the aim of supporting companies and financial institutions in using these new resources.
