Document summary

In an increasingly environmentally and financially unstable world it has never been more important to bridge the gap between those working in the field of financial services and those in environmental research, and to foster a mutually beneficial knowledge exchange relationship between these two vital sectors. This reports seeks to identify data and modelling capability needs of the financial services sectors in relation to biodiversity and managed ecosystems. This is the final report, following a workshop, a series of interviews and a symposium with the financial services sector and scientists from NERC to scope biodiversity and ecosystems' related data and modelling needs of the financial services sectors.
