“CDSB invites comments from multi-stakeholders on how the CDSB Framework for reporting environmental & climate change information can be best used and adapted to help advance disclosure of nature-related financial information by organisations globally.

What is the purpose of this consultation?

The aim of the consultation is to advance the disclosure of nature-related financial information by organisations globally and explore the role of the CDSB Framework in this process.

Why now?

Building on the momentum of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and calls for increased nature-related financial disclosure, CDSB believes an opportunity exists to leverage established market-tested practices and frameworks to drive immediate action that meets the urgency of the challenge. Given the already complex corporate reporting landscape, minimising the emergence of new frameworks and market practices will be important to enhancing the effectiveness and uptake of nature-related disclosure at scale. The CDSB Framework already covers environmental and climate change reporting, is widely referenced in stock exchanges’ guidance globally and aligns with existing regulation.

How do I contribute?
