The Natural Value Initiative

The Natural Value Initiative (NVI) is a collaboration between international environmental NGO Fauna & Flora International (FFI), the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI), and Brazilian business school FGV. A close collaboration is also in place with the UN Principles for Responsible Development (UNPRI). The initiative works with the finance sector to create and test a toolkit for evaluating financial risk and opportunity arising from companies’ dependence and impact on biodiversity and ecosystem services.
