#Climate Change


The Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) was established by the G20 Financial Stability Board to develop recommendations that would enable stakeholders to better understand the concentrations of carbon-related assets in the financial sector and the financial system’s exposures to climate-related risks. The TCFD published its final report in June 2017 with recommendations to help both issuers and financial institutions disclose climate-related information.

This event will help corporations understand the TCFD recommendations. We will:

  • Feature an overview of the TCFD recommendations and tools available for companies interested in implementing them;
  • Examine the role of climate-related financial disclosures from the perspective of asset owners, financial institutions, and disclosing companies;
  • Highlight the use of climate scenario analysis for both TCFD reporting and driving more resilient corporate strategy.

This event is one of six in a series of global “Redefining Sustainable Business” convenings that will generate insights to help reshape how we think about the sustainable business agenda. These dialogues will feed into content that will be disseminated at the BSR Conference 2018 in New York, November 6-8. 

Sponsor: Bloomberg L.P., Mitsubishi Corporation               Supporter: Financial Service Agency
