”I appreciate this second day’s sessions a lot. I like the hands-on approach the GIIN propose in the ‘solution rooms’. Marine conservation, for instance is a topic that I find we don’t talk enough about in the investment industry. We cannot solve for the climate and biodiversity crisis without protecting and restoring our oceans. Deep-sea mining, as an example, have significant negative effects on marine ecosystems and the cost of restoring these areas trump the revenues gained from the extraction. This a good example of a hands-on issue that is crucial and stresses the need for the investment community to find better ways to value nature,” says Edson Fonseca, Sustainability Specialist Europe at Schroders.
