“Seamlessly navigate TNFD reporting with us to showcase your commitment to nature-related financial disclosures."​


As part of their broader ESG strategy, a North Sea oil & gas operator wished to align with the TNFD framework to increase their biodiversity resilience. ​

This grew from a recommendation by key stakeholders to improve the  understanding of their impact on nature-related issues and communicate this to their lenders. ​

The company saw the importance of integrating risking of their impact on nature into decision making, to complement their commitment to TCFD.​

As a new framework, the company needed to understand the complexity involved and so a pilot study was run on one of their assets.​

As we had already assisted with their TCFD planning so we were well placed to also assist on their TNFD setup.​
