Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures: Introducing the TNFD Recommendations
27 September 2023
This September, the long-awaited Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) recommendations and guidance will be published.
We are therefore excited to announce that our next webinar, taking place on the 27th of September, will feature Emily McKenzie: Technical Director, TNFD. Emily is a long-standing friend and contributor to UKNEE, having previously presented her work on the Dasgupta Review before delivering the keynote speech at envecon 2022 on the progress of the TNFD.
In the webinar, Emily will give an overview of TNFD’s finalised recommended disclosures, discuss additional guidance such as the LEAP approach, suggest recommended metrics, and reveal what is next for the TNFD before opening to questions from the audience.
TNFD’s mission is to “develop and deliver a risk management and disclosure framework for organisations to report and act on evolving nature-related risks, with the ultimate aim of supporting a shift in global financial flows away from nature-negative outcomes and toward nature-positive outcomes.” Following from the success of the TCFD, which has helped expand and standardize the disclosure of climate risks around the world, the TNFD holds vast potential to similarly empower organisations to understand their impacts and dependencies on nature. This webinar is therefore an excellent opportunity for you to gain an understanding, and be involved in the discussion, around a major global development in environmental economics and green finance.
