TNFD announces three new knowledge partners

News 8 June 2022

The Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) adds three new knowledge partners to the group of leading science organisations and standards bodies supporting TNFD.

The OECD, Stockholm Resilience Centre with the Beijer Institute and the GEDB Academy, and the Centre for Nature-based Climate Solutions at National University of Singapore become TNFD knowledge partners. Joining a group of 13 existing TNFD knowledge partners announced in January this year, these three leading international organisations will support the TNFD by providing best in class scientific knowledge, as well as expertise on market standards, risk management and reporting practice.

The organisations will each bring unique and detailed expertise to the work of the TNFD and support the market-led Taskforce of 34 Members specifically, who are tasked to deliver the nature-related risk and opportunity management and disclosure framework:

  • The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) brings expertise on policymaking for financial markets, nature and biodiversity, and green finance and investment. It will draw on both its role in convening policy makers and other stakeholders to engage them in the mission and work of the TNFD as well as its standard-setting role.
  • Stockholm Resilience Centre at Stockholm University brings expertise on resilience, complex systems, biodiversity, finance, and business, while also providing TNFD with access to the expertise of its partners Beijer Institute and Global Economic Dynamics and the Biosphere (GEDB) Academy Program of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
  • The Centre for Nature-based Climate Solutions at National University of Singapore brings expertise on nature-based solutions for climate mitigation and adaptation in the Asia-Pacific region.

Partnering with a total of now 16 leading organisations, as well as drawing on the expertise and experience of organisations that are members of the TNFD Forum, reflects TNFD’s commitment to build on existing expertise, initiatives, and standards, and to create a framework that is both market-led and science-backed.

The TNFD knowledge partners provided instrumental input into the first beta version of the TNFD framework, released in March 2022, and will continue to support the Taskforce until the launch of its final recommendations in September 2023.
