This week, the UN Pension Fund became an investor participant of Nature Action 100, the first global investor engagement initiative to address the urgent crisis of nature and biodiversity loss around the world. A total 190 institutional investors participants, representing USD$23.6 trillion in assets under management or advise, will engage with 100 companies in key sectors around the world to drive the necessary corporate action to protect and restore nature and ecosystems.
"The international community is alarmed by the continued loss of biodiversity and has called for the contribution of the financial sector to help implement the recently adopted Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework. That is why the Fund has to take action now. The Fund will build on its strong experience engaging with companies for the preservation and restoration of nature," said Pedro Guazo, Representative of the Secretary-General for the investment of UNJSPF assets.
The Fund is a leader in sustainable investments and in 2022 became a signatory of the UN biodiversity Conference (COP 15) Statement from the financial sector – a global initiative committing the financial community to contribute to the protection and restoration of biodiversity and ecosystems through financing activities and investments.
