TCFD - Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures
TCFD is a powerful organization tasked by the global Financial Stability Board with bringing uniformity to climate-related corporate risk disclosure. It released a voluntary reporting framework for companies in G20 countries in financial and four non-financial industry groups. The four other industry groups are energy, transportation, materials and buildings, and agriculture (both food and forest products.) Investors, lenders and underwriters are the primary audience. TCFD emphasizes the use of climate risk scenario analysis to assess the resiliency of business strategies. TCFD prefers integrated disclosure in financial filings but leaves the option to companies as to where to disclose. The other frameworks, including GRI, SASB, CDP, and CDSB aligned their reporting frameworks to the TCFD recommendations. [Source: Global Affairs Associates]
