Part of the problem is that we have taken nature for granted and treated its bounty as free. And for many of us, the problem may seem far away from big cities.
Today’s episode of Green Pulse has positive news for nature. Now there is a way to help companies make better decisions to protect nature and better understand their impacts on the natural world.
A global framework or guide has been developed to help companies measure and report their nature-related risks and impacts and will be published this week. Called the Task Force for Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD), it could soon be adopted by regulators to push for better nature protection.
To tell us more about this is Mr Tony Goldner, CEO of the London-based TNFD.
