TCFD Good Practice Handbook Launch

Join us for a networking drinks reception at Bloomberg on Monday September 23rd to celebrate the publication of the TCFD Good Practice Handbook developed by the Climate Disclosure Standards Board (CDSB) and the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB).

Date: 23 September 2019 
Venue: Bloomberg LP Headquarters, 731 Lexington Ave, New York, NY 10022.
Time: 4.30pm – 7.30pm 
Registration: Registration for the event has now closed. Please email to be added to the waitlist.

Building on the success of the TCFD Implementation Guide, the Handbook will go one step further and offer real-world examples of Task-Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) aligned disclosures in mainstream reports across many G20 countries. Striking a balance between financial and non-financial sectors, the Handbook will help you understand how organisations in your sector are implementing the TCFD recommendations and provide insight into good practice techniques to enhance your own climate-related financial disclosures. 

During the event, you will hear from keynote speakers on climate risk disclosure and accelerating the transition to a low carbon economy. CDSB and SASB will also present the Handbook and demonstrate good practice disclosure through real-world examples from annual reports.  

The reception will bring together a targeted group of leading companies, policy makers and climate experts for an evening of high-level discussion and networking drinks against the backdrop of Climate Week NYC.

There will be time for questions with our experts followed by a networking drinks reception.
