Our Plan for Nature

Harnessing the power of investment to accelerate a nature positive future

Why is natural capital important?

Natural capital plays a vital role in our economy and society with over half of global GDP, or $44 trillion, dependent on nature and its services.* Furthermore, up to $967 billion is required each year to reverse the decline in biodiversity by 2030,** potentially creating plentiful investment opportunities across new and existing industries. As a result, nature is becoming an integral factor within investment risk and return. That’s why we regard accounting for nature risk, and its opportunities, as part of our fiduciary duty to our clients.

Despite the growing recognition of nature’s importance, the unsustainable depletion of our natural resources persists. We must not only preserve our natural capital, but restore and enhance it – our global economy must become not just net zero, but also nature positive.

A whole-business approach

Schroders’ Plan for Nature is our statement of intent in accelerating a nature positive future. We outline our whole-business approach to managing nature-related impacts and exposures, from research and analysis and engaging with companies, to developing nature-based investment solutions. It also covers our own operations and partnering with others to achieve this shared ambition.

Take a look at our plan to learn more about our approach, our progress to date, and future priorities. You can also learn more in our Group Nature and Biodiversity Position Statement.
