This year’s workshop will take a more technical approach to managing climate risk demonstrating effective disclosure and risk management practices.  

Learn from leading corporates as they outline the successful approaches they have taken to embed climate risk into their organization, in addition to understanding what investors want to see from climate risk disclosures and how this information is utilized.  

As authors of the TCFD Implementation Guide, CDSB and SASB will also present good practice guidance based on real-world examples of TCFD aligned disclosures in annual reports from multiple industries. 

The interactive nature of the workshop ensures that you’ll leave with an in-depth understanding of what information to disclose, but also how to effectively disclose this information for the benefit of investors and your organization’s long-term goals through a series of presentations, roundtable discussion groups and the Enterprise Risk Management board game. 

Networking over a Mimosa-themed brunch will ensure you connect with like-minded senior representatives from the public and private sector to celebrate the 10th annual Climate Week NYC.
