NatureAlpha Works with MSCI on Biodiversity and Nature

NatureAlpha, a nature and biodiversity analytics company, has announced its collaboration with investment solutions provider MSCI, to drive the provision of solutions for investors seeking to track the biodiversity and nature risks, footprints and dependencies of their investments. The adoption the Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) at COP15 in Montreal last year has spotlighted the vital role the investment community plays in protecting nature and biodiversity and how related material risks can be measured. Through the collaboration, MSCI will distribute NatureAlpha’s biodiversity data and analytical tools to the global investment community. This will allow MSCI’s existing clients to better identify these risks through their exposure to high-impact companies, industries and operations, as well as participate in more meaningful engagements with portfolio companies. It will also provide enhanced comprehensive reporting in response to growing regulatory pressures, including the EU’s Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) reporting, as well as voluntary alignment with the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) framework. Arne Klug, Vice President and Biodiversity Research Director at MSCI ESG Research, said: “Global biodiversity challenges have tangible impacts on the ways in which companies across industries function now and in the future. Therefore, investor demand for advanced data and tools to address biodiversity risks and impact is growing. MSCI’s collaboration with NatureAlpha will help our clients better identify and assess impacts and risks from nature loss in their portfolios.”
