Working Title: How investors, advisors & pension providers can take action on deforestation  - a case study on the Gran Chaco


The Gran Chaco is the largest dry forest in South America, encompassing a highly biodiverse ecosystem. In recent years, soy conversion and cattle ranching have driven significant deforestation, generating emissions and biodiversity losses threatening hundreds of species. Whilst many lenders and investors are beginning to take action on deforestation, the specific risks associated with exposure to the Chaco ecosystem remain poorly understood. This webinar brings together leaders from the worlds of non-profit, fintech and finance to explore what actions investors & lenders can take to mitigate the risk of financing deforestation.
