DEFRA issues new green reporting guide

A new government guide offers advice to firms on measuring impacts on biodiversity and ecosystem services.

The environment department (DEFRA) is consulting on new guidance designed to help UK firms improve environmental disclosure and demonstrate their sustainability credentials.1

Advice is also given on how to report biodiversity offsetting.
