Our recent conversations with Professor Gonzalez, ahead of his attendance at the COP15 of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity this week, highlighted for us the growing importance of biodiversity, not just to the environment, but also to the economies that are dependent upon it.

Firms looking to use Gen AI or other disruptive technologies to improve products or services need to consider their options before rushing in. Broadly speaking there are three main avenues available:

The questions we hear most from our PE PortCo clients revolve around what steps they can take towards being a more data-driven business. Exec recognise that AI is highly likely to change the way they run their businesses. The trouble is working out exactly what these changes might be and how to avoid falling for the hype that surrounds this fast-moving space.
