The rates of both ecosystem destruction and accelerated biodiversity loss are exacerbating the effects of climate change. This demands new metrics that include natural assets as part of an organizations’ decision making. At MAPFRE, we’ve approved the corporate greenhouse gas offsetting strategy. We included biodiversity conservation in our selection of carbon offset projects so that in the near future we will be able to quantify the offset of our environmental impact, both in CO2 and in Natural Capital.

By doing so, we’re ensuring a reversal of our negative impact on the environment.

Restoring ecosystems means preventing, halting, and reversing damage. Not stopping investment, but rather investing in the environment
