Climate risk and TCFD event series

CDSB is organising a series of capacity building workshops and webinars to support rapid, high-quality implementation of the TCFD recommendations.

Since the day the Governor of the Bank of England Mark Carney gave his powerful Tragedy of the Horizons speech, pressing the urgent need to consider the disclosure of climate-related risks, it has become clear at an international level that climate change needs to be tackled from a financial angle, to make sure companies deal with the risks and opportunities that the changing climate and the low-carbon economy are creating.

Now that the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) has published their recommendations, CDSB is organising a series of capacity building workshops and webinars which will equip companies with the capability to bring about rapid, high-quality implementation of the recommendations, and investors with the knowledge to influence uptake.

From now to early next year, you can expect to receive invites to a number of events which will explore some of the key themes of the TCFD, including determining and defining materiality, and assessing director's duties around climate risk.


Converging on climate risk: the SASB, CDSB and TCFD

Join this webinar to understand how the SASB and CDSB are integrating the Task Force recommendations into their work and how companies can disclose climate-related financial information by using the CDSB Framework and the SASB standards. We will explore the topics outlined in the joint paper that was released at Climate Week.
