Recently the G20 government leaders discussed the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). The task force has developed a comprehensive framework applicable to all organizations in all industries—to report climate-related risks and opportunities in financial filings. The framework enables organizations to report material forward-looking information on the potential financial impacts of climate change and the energy transition and how these impacts are managed. This material information fulfills the needs for sound decision making by shareholders, investors and other stakeholders.
Sustainable Finance Lab and Deloitte organize a round-table about the role of the framework in the energy transition.
What to expect?
