【October 4th】PRI in Person 2023 Official Side Event~Disclosure and sustainability standards in forest-risk commodity investment: A review of TNFD, NDPE and Indonesia’s green taxonomy



Event Description

Products that use raw materials that lead to deforestation in tropical forests, such as palm oil, cattle, chocolate, paper pulp, and lumber, are called “deforestation risk products” or “forest risk products”.
The use of these products can lead to deforestation and forest degradation in the tropical regions where they are produced, with significant impacts on forests, biodiversity, and local communities.
To address these issues, NDPE (No Deforestation, No Peat, No Exploitation) policies are being adopted by financial institutions as well as businesses that handle these risk products.
This event will provide an overview of NDPE policies and an assessment of their implementation.

Focusing particularly on Indonesia, where forest-risk products continue to rely on deforestation, the event will also report on sustainable finance policies promoted by the Indonesian government and their impact on foreign investors.

In addition, we will provide an overview and analysis of the recently released final version of the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) and report on the divergence between the TNFD and international standards including the Global Biodiversity Framework.
