Learn how the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) is changing the reporting landscape

Introduction to CLIMATE DISCLOSURE (3-hour workshop)

Understand what you need to report climate-related risk

During a half-day workshop, explore the recommendations from the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) on reporting both transition and physical climate-related risk. You will explore the benefits, drawbacks and flexibility of the four categories of TCFD recommendations: Governance, Strategy, Risk, and Metrics and Targets.

You will gain a better understanding of the financial and investor communities’ expectations and international momentum behind this movement. You will understand what is needed to develop a TCFD-compliant report and the advantages this brings your company.

TCFD is gaining ground in financial community

The financial community recognizes that climate change is a serious and material risk to the economy and markets. Investors, banks, insurers and stock exchanges support increased and higher-quality climate-change reporting from companies. They will use this information to enhance their financial decision-making and avoid sharp corrections in the markets and valuations. To this end, the Financial Services Board, at the request of the G20, convened a task force who have produced a set of disclosure recommendations.

The recommendations by the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures have gained strong and credible momentum in the past two years. In some regions, this disclosure is regulated. Overall, the trend is towards TCFD compliance becoming standard practice. Holders of $83 trillion in assets will be required to complete TCFD-compliant reports by 2020.

Skills and knowledge you will gain

  • A foundation to create a business case for climate-related financial reporting
  • An understanding of stakeholder expectations
  • Knowledge to create a staged approach to reporting
  • Insight into what makes a strong climate report
