Natural Capital Summit 2021: preparing for nature-related reporting requirements

Just as organisations are getting to grips with implementing TCFD climate change reporting, they now need to factor into plans how to incorporate nature-based financial disclosures into reporting processes, following the launch of the Taskforce on Nature-Related Financial Disclosure (TNFD) last month.

Sessions: There will be several sessions throughout the course of the day. Details available on registration.

Event details: 

City & Financial Global's Natural Capital Summit 2021 will provide companies and financial institutions with a comprehensive guide to all the key issues involved in nature-based financial disclosure and reporting. 

The TNFD aims to build on the success of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), which has become instrumental in mainstreaming the issue of climate-related financial risks. The TNFD’s framework will complement the TCFD by giving companies and financial institutions, as well as their investors and stakeholders, a broader picture of their environmental risks. 

Topics that will be covered by our expert panel include: 

  • Protecting natural capital across the business spectrum
  • Identifying nature-related risk
  • Implications of the TNFD framework for financial institutions and corporates
  • Data: origins, transparency, accountability
  • Metrics and targets: modelling nature-related risks and opportunities
  • Adjusting the DNA of your business to TNFD
  • Managing reporting for asset owners and managers
  • Standard setting: integrating TNFD and TCFD
  • What to expect from COP15?
