Introduction to Climate-related Financial Disclosure: What is TCFD and its Recommendations


28 Sep 2020 @ 10:00 am (+8 GMT)

In June 2017, The Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) released its final recommendations on a framework for developing improved climate-related financial disclosures through their existing reporting processes. The TCFD recommendations allow organisations to connect with their stakeholders on climate-related risks and drive awareness of climate change, leading to improved management of these risks and better strategic planning.

“Introduction to Climate-related Financial Disclosure: What is TCFD and its Recommendations”

To encourage discussions on this issue, we introduce you to the current disclosure practices as they relate to the Task Force’s recommendations, highlight key challenges associated with implementing the recommendations, and outline some of the efforts the Task Force will consider undertaking in coming months to help address some of the implementation challenges.
