Natural Capital, and investing in biodiversity, is a key impact theme for 2023.
On day one of the Impact Summit, Thursday March 30, a panel of industry leaders will come together to discuss the opportunities and pathways for a regenerative future through decarbonisation and natural capital.
The panel session is called: Leading the Way – Natural Capital and Decarbonisation.
Moderator Mary Delahunty (Seven Advisory) will lead a panel of biodiversity leaders.

Energy in the space has been driven partly by the development of the Taskforce for Nature-Related Financial Disclosures (TNFD), which offers investors a model for measuring and disclosing potential risks around biodiversity loss and natural hazards.
As well as COP 15 “The Paris Agreement for biodiversity” which was held in Montreal last year, and which managed to reach consensus on the need to reverse nature-loss by 2030.
A broad range of investment opportunities are emerging to both protect and regenerate natural assets, while also rethinking land-use processes of the past.
Regenerative agriculture is boosting productivity and healing the soil, sustainable forestry is disrupting traditional timber harvesting, and ethically sourced carbon offset projects are bringing a new era of community engagement to reforestation and deforestation projects.
The Impact Investment Summit 2023 will be held on 30-31 March at the Sydney International Convention Centre, all the details are here.
