New on BMO’s Sustainability Leaders podcast, a discussion about biodiversity, and how it’s being lost at a rate unprecedented in human history. Guest Kai Chan, Professor from the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability at the University of British Columbia talks about the implications for businesses – both in terms of their impacts on biodiversity, and their dependence on it.
We also hear from Katie Leach from the UN Environment World Conservation Monitoring Center and Chris Hart, from Global Canopy. Katie and Chris discuss ENCORE, a tool that helps businesses and financial institutions understand their own dependencies on nature and how to look at natural capital risks.
