How to improve climate and nature-related disclosure​

As the potential risks associated with climate change and environmental degradation are better understood, companies are expected to provide information in their reporting on how they are responding to these risks and opportunities.


The aim of this online workshop organised in collaboration with Climate Disclosure Standards Board (CDBS) in the framework of the National Environmental Congress (Conama) was to help companies provide a sufficient level of climate and environmental information necessary to inform investor decision-making and make capital allocations which ultimately support the transition to a low-carbon climate-resilient economy.

Guidelines for planning and monitoring corporate biodiversity performance

Many companies strive for a unified picture of their biodiversity performance, especially if they are involved in multiple activities, sites, products or brands, with multiple raw materials and supply chains.

Giulia Carbone, Executive Director of the IUCN Global Business and Biodiversity Programme held a live discussion with Spanish business representatives on how to enhance the Guidelines in order to make them more useful for businesses.
