Insights on TNFD Sector Guidance

Draft sector guidance is currently available for eight priority sectors.

This webinar for Forum members presented an overview of eight sector guidance documents published at COP28 in December 2023. The session included a deep dive into the Metals & Mining and Energy sector guidance, and TNFD’s Technical Director, Emily McKenzie, hosted a panel discussion and Q&A with the audience.

The draft sector guidance supplements the final TNFD Recommendations, its disclosure metrics, and the guidance on assessing nature-related issues—the LEAP Approach. Feedback on how to improve the guidance, whether the proposed sector metrics are decision-useful and proportionate, and any suggestions for additional metrics is open until 29 March 2024. The final guidance will be published in mid-2024.

The eight sectors covered in this webinar are:
