The Biodiversity Data Puzzle
Within this document we explore how improved ‘ecosystem and biodiversity’ insights can be gained, and could be consistently produced, for every commercial asset on Earth, with geospatially driven ex-situ data approaches. This data can then be blended with other ESG data points for individual project finance or summed to parent, portfolio or area (e.g. state, nation). Proposed methods are presented within the context of the wider policy and technical realities, showing that such insights are unlikely to organically scale without developing the necessary supporting public good data infrastructure to allow the flow and integration of data types across a diverse range of stakeholders.
