Attracting investments in nature-based solutions (INVEST4NATURE)
The EU project INVEST4NATURE aims to contribute to the development of a market for nature-based solutions (NBS). 15 European partners from industry, academia, civil society and the public sector are working together to better understand the many benefits that nature-based solutions offer. The project focuses in particular on the economic valuation of nature-based solutions. This will facilitate the development of business models, which is important for both companies and, especially, investors.
Contribution to the development and structuring of nature-based solutions markets will enable the broad application of such measures. Nature-based solutions are key measures in climate change adaptation and mitigation, as well as in combating biodiversity loss. INVEST4NATURE will demonstrate the potentials of investing in nature-based solutions in order to maximise these benefits.
As a project partner, Steinbeis Europa Zentrum coordinates the communication activities, the dissemination and exploitation of the project results and is responsible for the financial management of the whole project.
