In 2023 the Task Force for Nature Related Finance published their reporting framework. Understanding the impacts of an organisation on nature, as well as the nature that the organisation is dependent on, allows organisations to manage their risks and opportunities and benefit our natural environment.

The ‘TNFD’ is a framework for organisations to report their biodiversity impacts and dependencies. It is a tool for both understanding biodiversity and managing it. Defra were a co-funder in the creation of the TNFD framework.
