Webinar: Valuing Nature

A Pathway for Impact Investing
Thursday, May 21, 2020 - 12:00pm EDT

The world is facing unprecedented challenges in the face of climate change and biodiversity loss. The price tag for taking on these issues exceeds the current and combined capital resources of governments and nonprofits, but there is still hope. Increased private capital, led by impact investors, offers an opportunity to better-leverage public and philanthropic resources and tackle our conservation challenges. 

During this webinar, NatureVest founder and author of the book, Valuing NatureWilliam Ginn outlines the emerging private sector investment opportunities in natural assets such as green infrastructure, forests, soils, and fisheries. What are the limitations and challenge of this new investment strategy? How and where can public and philanthropic resources catalyze early investment activity? What tools are available for investors and organizations hoping to develop their own projects? How can nonprofits successfully navigate this new space? 

This webinar, brought to you in partnership with the Conservation Finance Network, was a conversation between William Ginn and Peter Stein, Managing Director of the Lyme Timber Company.
