Pollination, the nature investment and advisory firm, has appointed Dame Amelia Fawcett as senior adviser to the business.

Currently, Fawcett is the lead director of State Street, co-chair of the International Panel on Biodiversity Credits (IAPB), chair of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and chair of the Circular Bioeconomy Alliance.

She will be advising Pollination on how to help clients navigate the evolving nature and biodiversity landscape.

Fawcett said: “I’m truly delighted to join Pollination as a senior adviser. In the face of the twin crises of biodiversity loss and climate, Pollination is perfectly placed to drive impact around the world and add value to its clients in this complex and critical space.

“2024 will be a crucial year for nature and I look forward to working with Pollination’s team and its clients to ensure the promise of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework is realised and we maintain momentum on halting and reversing biodiversity loss.”

Pollination’s chief executive and founder, Martijn Wilder, added: “We are honoured to have Fawcett join our esteemed senior advisory group. To attract someone of her calibre is a coup and a clear indication to the market that Pollination is the ‘go-to’ partner for climate and nature advisory and investment.”
