Task Force on Climate-related
What are the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures?
The Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) was developed in 2015 by the Financial Stability Board (FSB) to create consistent climate-related financial risk disclosures for use by companies, banks, and investors in providing information to stakeholders. Increasing the amount of reliable information on financial institutions’ exposure to climate-related risks and opportunities will strengthen the stability of the financial system, contribute to greater understanding of climate risks and facilitate financing the transition to a more stable and sustainable economy.
The United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) has publidhed numerous tools, frameworks, and guides to empower both participating institutions and those throughout the financial industry to better manage and disclose their climate risks.
What information should be disclosed?
The TCFD recommendations on climate-related financial disclosures are widely adoptable and applicable to organizations across sectors and jurisdictions. They are designed to solicit decision-useful, forward-looking information that can be included in mainstream financial filings.
The recommendations are structured around four thematic areas that represent core elements of how organizations operate: governance, strategy, risk management, and metrics and targets.
You can find the TCFD recommendations summarized and fully described in the TCFD recommendations report.
