As I return from one of the few perks of lockdown - a lunchtime walk with the dogs - I'm reminded of just how much I need nature (the wilder the better!) for my own mental health. So many of us have reconnected with nature during lockdown and I'm therefore encouraged to see nature and biodiversity starting to come to the fore in our focus on sustainability.

The Dasgupta Review considers the place of 'natural capital' in our economy. My own feeling is that finance will be a real agent of change here. Capital, and how we chose to deploy it, can be an enabler and a driver of behaviours and we see this, increasingly, with sustainability linked loans and investments. Hopefully, by starting to consider nature-related financial risks, funders and investors can do even more to help secure the future of our natural environment.
