IEMA COP28 Nature Day blog

IEMA's Leslie Wilson and Little Blue Research's Dr Stephanie Hime discuss the importance of having a day dedicated to nature at UN's Conference of the Parties (COP) 28 climate conference in Dubai.


The blog highlights society's reliance on nature to sequester carbon and tackle climate change, how climate change is leading to losses in natural capital and associated ecosystem services, and how nature-related risks have been linked to climate in recent private-sector initiatives.

Getting started with the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD)

With the final draft of the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) Framework set for release in September 2023, we have been looking at how businesses can get started with applying the framework and the practical steps to take to start understanding nature related risks and opportunities, including our experiences of piloting the LEAP (Locate, Evaluate, Assess, Prepare) approach.

Sustainability in Agricultural Business

In this blog, in collaboration with Crop Health & Protection - CHAPStephanie Hime and Ryan Twyford look specifically at the farming and agriculture sector and how the growing awareness of nature loss, and the mechanisms hoping to address this decline, will affect a sector so heavily intertwined with nature.

Looking at the resources, tools and roadmaps available for UK agri-business, the blog provides a starting point for actions the agricultural sector can take to set and meet sustainability targets, support the UK’s nature positive commitment and respond to requests for nature-related information.
