Putting TCFD to work: One year on
Released 1 year ago, the recommendations of the TCFD encourage corporates to disclose climate-related risks to help investors make better-informed decisions on where to invest. Companies now have a clear framework to improve their climate-related financial disclosure.
As of April 2018, more than 275 companies, with a combined market capitalisation of more than $6.6 trillion, have publicly expressed support for the TCFD recommendations. The companies include more than 160 financial firms — responsible for assets of over $86.2 trillion. Much work has been done on putting TCFD to work over the past year, from guidance to companies, to pilot-projects for banks and investors. Industry leaders such as UNEP FI, CDSB, WBCSD and CDP have led several different initiatives and projects to help implement the recommendations.
In this webinar, we take a look back over the different guidelines and issues around TCFD implementation for companies, banks and investors.
Topics covered include:
• The barriers to implementing TCFD for companies
• Lessons from TCFD implementation projects
• TCFD and the financial sector – what’s next?
• Jane Stevensen, Taskforce Engagement Director, CDP
• Remco Fischer, Programme Officer, Climate Change, UNEP FI
