Sustainability: Working Group Introduces Biodiversity Basics Learning Program

If you’re a professional at a financial institution and you want to learn more about biodiversity (related to sustainability), then you may consider an e-learning program that “teaches you the biodiversity basics.”

The Biodiversity Working Group has “developed an e-learning tool on the biodiversity basics that can be done from anywhere, on any device, on the go.”

As noted in an update from the Dutch Central Bank, the e-learning is “easily shareable, contains high quality content and provides an overview of all the basics of biodiversity in one tool.”

Financial institutions “face risks due to the decline of biodiversity.”

However, there are also “opportunities for financial institutions to conserve and restore biodiversity.” This e-learning “not only makes you aware of the biodiversity basics – what biodiversity is, why it is important and why financial institutions should act on biodiversity.”

It also “teaches you the five biggest drivers of biodiversity loss.” It helps “to understand why biodiversity is relevant for financial institutions and businesses.” It enables you “to see the impact of biodiversity – it delivers ecosystem services and its relevance for our entire economy – and it guides you in the actions you can take as a financial institution to reverse biodiversity loss.”

After completing this e-learning you will be “equipped to become an advocate for biodiversity action in your own organization and role.”

This e-learning is developed by the Biodiversity Working Group of the Dutch Sustainable Finance Platform.

The e-learning “links to sources that, at the time of development, “were in the public domain.”

The Biodiversity Working Group nor the Sustainable Finance Platform is “responsible for the contents of the information provided via the links.”

The Sustainable Finance Platform “supports this working group’s efforts.”

However, the practices and advice described herein “are in no way binding for the individual financial institutions comprising the industry organizations which are members of the Platform, nor are they committed to take any specific follow-up actions.”

Furthermore, this tool “outlines private sector initiatives and as such does not contain any supervisory requirements or government positions.”
