In December 2019, CDSB announced an open public consultation and call for evidence on advancing nature-related financial disclosures and use of CDSB Framework. The consultation concluded on February 28. We welcome everyone to participate in this webinar as we discuss the results of the consultation and the future of natural capital accounting.

Discussion topics: 

  • Why is accounting for natural capital important?
  • What are natural capital impacts and dependencies and why should companies be prepared?
  • Can the CDSB Framework serve as the basis for driving forward natural capital accounting?


Building on the momentum of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and calls for increased nature-related financial disclosure, CDSB believes an opportunity exists to leverage established market-tested practices and frameworks to drive immediate action that meets the urgency of the challenge. Given the already complex corporate reporting landscape, minimising the emergence of new frameworks and market practices will be important to enhancing the effectiveness and uptake of nature-related disclosure at scale. The CDSB Framework already covers environmental and climate change reporting, is widely referenced in stock exchanges’ guidance globally and aligns with existing regulation.
