Podcast: Biodiversity and why we haven’t hit 'peak ESG' – the CIO call


Our expert panel discuss the risks that biodiversity loss poses to investors - and what we’re doing to address them.


In our latest CIO call, we focus on investment risks and opportunities related to biodiversity, as Lewis Pugh, UNEP Patron of the Oceans and LGIM’s global partner, swims the length of the Hudson river to highlight threats to nature.

You can listen to the episode on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and AudioBoom.

The call is hosted by Sonja Laud, LGIM’s Chief Investment Officer, who is joined by Amelia Tan, Head of Responsible Investment Strategy, and Alexander Burr, ESG Policy Lead. We also discuss:

  • The outlook for the global economy and markets into year end
  • Water quality and water security
  • Why despite the increasing politicisation of the debate, we don’t believe we’ve reached ‘peak ESG’

The podcast was recorded on 31 August and is moderated by Max Julius, Head of Content.

For professional investors only. Capital at risk.
