Risks beyond climate – from TCFD to TNFD
Green Finance Advisor of Friends of the Earth (HK)
Climate change has been the front and centre for discussion on sustainability and is likely to stay as a hot topic for the world of green finance for years to come. However, being responsible citizens of the world there are other important topics we need to find solutions. The loss of our nature is another crisis that is equally challenging for us and is bringing immense economic and societal challenges to our world. To overcome these challenges we have to understand and more important to measure the risk and the impact of the loss of our nature.
In the Davos meeting of World Economic Forum held in early 2019 the idea emerges to address these issues. Later in the year WWF and AXA worked a report to discuss about integrating nature into investment strategists. The report laid out the risks from biodiversity and called for the establishment of a mechanism for them. After a serious of meetings and discussions among different parties the Task Force of Nature-related Financial Disclosure was announced in July 2020. The Taskforce or TNFD in short called for companies and financial institutions to understand, assess and report the nature-related risks. While the reporting framework is still on the work, we may see that to mirror Taskforce of Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD), which was developed five years ago and has gradually become the most preferred framework by regulators and financial institutions for reporting climate-related risks.
Under the current schedule, an informal working group is working on the TNFD framework. The target is to have the framework developed in 2021 and tested in 2022. We are looking forward to the details of it.
