Our metrics work focuses on accelerating system change in the financial sector to robustly measure and manage biodiversity-related financial risk. Learning from what progress has been made in the climate space and how F4B is working to strengthen regulatory and disclosure frameworks, develop credible data architecture for biodiversity dependencies and impacts, and rapidly build risk assessment and management capacity within financial institutions. Key activities include supporting the establishment of a Taskforce for Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) and assessing the value and feasibility of an open source midstream biodiversity data platform for investors, addressing the important gap around company-level impacts. Our work in metrics actively supports our wider portfolio, ensuring our efforts across civil action, liabilities, offsets and more leverage the latest evidence available.
This work cuts across all of the F4B strategic areas of focus.
