Presentation of the Task Force on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD)

We announce the Biodiversity and Financial Sector webinar. Presentation of the Taskforce for Nature-Related Financial Disclosure (TNFD), organized by the IDB in association with LAB, UNEP FI, and FEBRABAN, to discuss trends in the financial sector’s approach to biodiversity and natural capital. The event will be held on August 17, at 10 am, and aims to contribute to increasing the knowledge of institutions on the subject, with the presentation (i) of the recently created Taskforce for Nature-Related Financial Disclosure (TNFD), which will address the global context, justification, objectives and possibilities of participation of Brazilian financial institutions and financial regulators; and (ii) UNEP FI initiatives to make biodiversity issues tangible for financial institutions, such as the publication Beyond ‘Business as Usual’: Biodiversity Targets and Finance: Managing biodiversity risks across business sector.

The webinar will feature Andrew Mitchell, representing TNFD, and Liesel Van Ast, from UNEP FI, on panels that will be preceded by IDB and Febraban opening and moderated by @Netto from AC Schneider, Maria E. (IDB | LAB).
