Bringing Clarity To Climate Accounting – S1E3

Exploring the Growing Significance of Nature in Reporting

Featuring Sarah Middlemiss, COO of Ecometrica

In episode 3 of “Bringing Clarity to Climate Accounting”, host Adrian Smith is joined by Sarah Middlemiss, Ecometrica’s COO who previously led the company’s space team. Together they delve into the compelling topic of nature’s escalating relevance in reporting.

Once considered purely voluntary, nature and biodiversity have now emerged as increasingly vital components of corporate disclosure frameworks and regulations. Drawing attention to innovative frameworks, Sarah and Adrian emphasize the groundbreaking TNFD (Task Force on Nature-related Financial Disclosures) as they explore its core question: What dependencies does an organization have on nature? The mounting abundance of frameworks and regulations, such as the European Union Deforestation-Free Products Regulation (EUDR), commands the attention of the finance sector, which brings our hosts to wonder: how knowledgeable do finance teams need to be when it comes to nature? As the discussion expands to encompass the vast domain of biodiversity, our hosts touch upon risk-ridden supply chains and the diligence required to ensure investment in and use of sustainable commodities. It appears as though the TNFD is emerging as the pivotal first step towards instigating meaningful change when it comes to businesses and nature.
