  1. Comment particularly on the TNFD, where Helen is mentioning it in her snippet: I reviewed the first draft that the TNFD presented. I have to say, I found it rather disappointing. Particularly given the fact that TCFD is in place and up and running already, much more could have been copy/pasted to make this a fast approach. – I can only conclude from this that involved folks did never properly read the TCFD documents, and/or were/are still trying to develop new to put their own stamp on things. That is a wast of time actually for any ESG reporting professional to review/provide consultation input! Another example for so many stakeholders in the field to preach “less proliferation” but not acting accordingly. We don´t need to invent new what has been accepted as suitable. Speed is needed.
