Bloomberg, Natural History Museum Partner on Biodiversity Index

The UK’s Natural History Museum and Bloomberg are collaborating to make the museum’s Biodiversity Intactness Index (BII) data available to investors through the latter’s platform. The business and financial information provider plans to design a tool combining the museum’s BII data with Bloomberg’s data on the physical assets linked to almost 50,000 global companies. The BII houses date on more than 58,000 plants, fungi and animals globally, outlining how local terrestrial biodiversity responds to human pressures, such as land use change. Patricia Torres, Bloomberg’s Global Head of Sustainable Finance Solutions, said: “Despite biodiversity emerging as one of the key areas for investment, the data available for investors remains inadequate. That’s why we are thrilled to be working with the Natural History Museum to help provide valuable information for investors pursuing biodiversity strategies aimed at preserving and protecting ecosystems.”
