Finance has to finance something
At Bank of Nature, we acknowledge the money and economy will be sustained, ahead of other priorities, between now and a climate-change future. That means finance will continue to be the tool we use to pay for progress.
Finance, therefore, must finance something. At Bank of Nature, we’re focussed on paying nature — what we owe in rent, what nature deserves as reward for its investment in our society, what we should repair because of our damaging ways of extracting value with negative externalities.
Paying Nature is interactive, and interactivity is unifying: unifying people with Nature; and unifying people with each other at the scale of Nature.
Corporate Finance finances extraction from Nature. Extraction is divisive.
Extraction that is divisive is not creating a good Anthropocene. A two-way human-nature economic partnership is interactive and a path toward a good Anthropocene.
