Hymans Robertson On... Investment - Biodiversity and natural capital

08 Dec 2023


In this episode of Hymans Robertson On... our host, Amy Sutherland, presents the latest episode in our investment series, and is joined by Andre Ranchin, Investment Consultant at Hymans Robertson and Ann Meoni, Senior Sustainability Analyst at Abrdn.

In the advent of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), you may have heard of the upcoming Task Force on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD). Whilst there’s some expectation that investors may start disclosing in line with TNFD in the future, the time for action is now. During this episode, we discuss biodiversity and natural capital, and identify some of the steps asset owners may wish to take to integrate nature and biodiversity considerations into investment strategy and journey plans.

If you have any questions on anything discussed during the podcast, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
