Research undertaken in the Faculty of Arts has explored the viability of impact investments - which have dual goals of generating profit as well as environmental or social impact - in promoting biodiversity conservation. Dr Benjamin Thompson, School of Social Sciences, evaluated the financial risks and impact risks of recent impact investments in biodiversity conservation, ecosystem management and nature based solutions to climate change. The study found that risk mitigation measures are necessary to counter financial and impact risks.
