From principles to practice forum: Establishing the “how-to” for climate-related disclosures in mainstream reporting

To celebrate the upcoming launch of the "TCFD Implementation Guide", join us for an afternoon of high-level discussion and networking on accelerating the adoption of the TCFD recommendations.

Kindly hosted by the London Stock Exchange.

With over 600 organisations publicly expressing their support for the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), it’s clear companies and investors are ready to take action on the risks and opportunities presented by climate change.

In response to market demand for good practice examples and guidance, the Climate Disclosure Standards Board (CDSB) and the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) have come together to publish a clear, practical, “how-to” guide for companies seeking to implement the TCFD recommendations.

Kindly hosted by the London Stock Exchange, we invite you to join us on the 14th May for an afternoon forum of in-depth discussion and networking to celebrate the launch.
