Many investors are looking to decarbonize their portfolio to help meet net zero targets. Nature-based solutions can help to protect and restore ecosystems and address societal challenges, boosting biodiversity and increasing well-being in local communities.

This tool explains to investors how to apply a traditional investment approach and explores which attributes of forest-based approaches can be considered too, unpacking risks and returns across environmental, social, and governance attributes, including wildlife, the changing climate and wider societal benefits.
