Multinational grocery retailer Tesco took part in a programme run by Global Canopy in 2023 to pilot the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) recommendations prior to the launch of the recommendations in September. With support from technical expert consultancy Nature-based Insights and Global Canopy, Tesco piloted the TNFD’s LEAP approach to identify and assess its nature-related issues. The pilot focused on mapping Tesco’s palm oil supply chain and identifying priority locations in Indonesia for further analysis.

Reckitt, a British multinational consumer goods company that produces health, hygiene and nutrition products, also worked alongside Nature-based Insights piloting the TNFD LEAP approach to assess nature-related risks and opportunities in its natural latex supply chain in Thailand, which supplies a large proportion of material for the Durex brand. Reckitt is also one of the 40 Taskforce members of the TNFD.

In this educational webinar, Tesco, Reckitt, Global Canopy and Nature-based Insights discussed:

  • Getting started with the TNFD recommendations
  • The business case for assessing nature-related issues in the agricultural sector
  • Technical details of how Tesco, Reckitt and Nature-based Insights assessed nature-related issues in line with the TNFD’s LEAP approach
  • Lessons learned and what they mean for Tesco and Reckitt going forward.

The webinar included a short Q&A session.


  • Thomas Hollick, Group Forests Manager – Sustainability, Tesco
  • Dr. Tom Blenkinsopp, Product Sustainability and Stewardship Lead, Reckitt
