CDSB Speaker: Sundip Jadeja, Technical Manager

When the UK government revealed its Green Finance Strategy, TCFD reporting was a key part of the plan for shifting the focus of business, with the strategy making it clear the government would make plans for “all listed companies and large asset owners” to make disclosures using TCFD guidelines by 2022.

European policymakers are now looking to revise the EU Non-Financial Reporting Directive with the view to establish a harmonised but broader ESG reporting framework across the Union. This virtual panel will address to what extent this may be aligned with TCFD.

What will be discussed:

  • Latest developments in the UK (FCA consultation) and EU (NFRD revision) in relation to reporting of climate related information;
  • What are the anticipated results of the NFRD consultation and will it lead to greater transparency?
  • Challenges of TCFD reporting across different asset classes and geographies; and
  • Examining the future role of the TCFD framework given the growing competition among different frameworks (SASB, GRI, WEFI IBC initiative) and challenges described.
