Protecting and restoring biodiversity using mainstream finance.

About the project

BIOFIN-EU focuses on redirecting financial resources for biodiversity recovery and protection by creating a unified framework that categorises nature-based solutions, streamlines the investment process, and incorporates a data analytics and underwriting engine. Real-life case studies validate the approach, contributing to a dual green and digital transition that simplifies transactions. Outcomes will identify taxonomy gaps and provide evidence-based policy recommendations for the European financial services industry, supporting the EU’s biodiversity goals.

Our role

Rainno leads the communication, dissemination, and exploitation of the project’s outcomes. The primary focus is on raising awareness, establishing a strong and recognizable identity for the BIOFIN-EU initiative, engaging potential stakeholders, and finally, implementing an efficient communication and dissemination strategy. Rainno has created an innovative and structured marketing strategy to achieve these goals. Furthermore, Rainno will develop a go-to-market strategy for the successful market uptake of BIOFIN’s innovative solutions by recognising amongst others the Nature-Based Solution market as well as the worldwide competitive landscape.
