Nov-Dec newsletter: TNFD shares 2022 expectations
As 2021 comes to a close the TNFD Co-Chairs would like to thank you for your support of TNFD this year.
Following the formal launch in June, market players, as well as civil society, governments and regulators, have shown valuable support and interest in the initiative. 34 Taskforce Members are now well underway with leading the development of the TNFD framework for nature-related risks, supported by the 250 organsations of the TNFD Forum, with the beta version on track for release in early 2022.
The commercial imperative of managing nature-related risks and opportunities became increasingly clear in 2021. In 2022, expect corporates and financial institutions to embed nature more firmly across their organisations. In a new blog, the TNFD Co-Chairs share the nature-related developments on the top of their radar for the coming year.
We look forward to continuing the race towards nature-positive and net zero with you in 2022.
