Financial institutions must ensure they identify the exposure of their portfolios to biodiversity risks in a timely manner, since in-depth understanding of these risks informs adequate risk management. The joint DNB-PBL study has identified only the lower limit of the total exposure of financial institutions to risks of biodiversity loss. Due to the limited availability of data, authors were able to investigate only a limited number of biodiversity risks. Based on the results, therefore, it cannot be concluded that other risks are less relevant. It is important to further develop consistent and widely applied standards for measuring and disclosing biodiversity risks.
