What's at stake

Preserving the diversity of species and protecting land and soil are prerequisites for safeguarding our necessities of life. The fishing and tourism industries are just two examples of where we are highly dependent on properly functioning ecosystems. Biodiversity – be it in the air, water or the soil we cultivate – must be encouraged. Overuse of these natural systems needs to be prevented, just as much as their contamination with pollutants and waste material. Utilisation for the production of renewable resources must be accomplished on a sustainable basis.

Why does it matter

Global Challenges

  • Weakened ecosystems – in worst case, collapse

  • Conflicts regarding the use of land and water resources

  • Financial and societal costs due to value loss and yield shrinkage

  • Threats from toxic waste

  • Increasing costs for protection and remediation

  • Huge amounts of waste, especially in the production of industrial metals

Global Goals

  • Local, regional and global biodiversity in the air, soil and water

  • Reinforcement of the resilience of natural systems

  • Higher productivity and yields in the production of renewable raw materials

  • Sustained care of soil and land

  • The reduction and avoidance of excessive waste.

Relevance for Investors

Human influence on natural habitats of species leads to declining populations of animal and plant species, as well as soil erosion around the world. Companies operating in food production will face increasing challenges as a result. Loss of biodiversity and land has financial implications. The destruction of coral reefs can have serious consequences for the tourism industry and companies active in such fields. The same is true for declining agricultural yields due to excessive fertilization and erosion of fertile soils. Crop production per hectare is projected to decline in the future, while water intensity of crop irrigation will increase. Sustainable practises in land use and crop production will pay off in the long run. Food manufacturers that rely on such practises will increase their competitive advantage. Through their size, the largest companies have the power to change market practises.
