The Dutch Association of Investors for Sustainable Development (VBDO) works to create a sustainable capital market, a market that considers not only financial criteria but also non-financial, social and environmental criteria. VBDO’s vision is to increase sustainability awareness among companies and investors.
VBDO and Except started to collaborate in the Leaders for Nature Forum. We join forces to find solutions for pressing natural capital questions.
We explore the options to translate the principles of Circular Economy into Key Performance Indicators that are an inspiration to any organisation investors would like to invest in.
On 17th April 2015, IUCN organized the Leaders for Nature forum in Eindhoven. Except supported IUCN in a year long trajectory to prepare and guide the Forum in a new format. This included concept development, stakeholder involvement and preparation of the challenges.
The preparations resulted in 10 challenges brought in by the network of Leaders for Nature. Over 150 participants from business, NGOs and government joined the forum. Guided by Except, teams worked on the most pressing natural capital challenges.
