Key takeaways

Many countries are set to make climate reporting — as prescribed by the Taskforce on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) — compulsory over the next decade.

At the same time, key stakeholders — including investors, regulators, customers, and suppliers — expect companies to understand and disclose key climate-related exposures.

Climate reporting should be viewed not only as a compliance exercise, but rather as an opportunity.

Companies that can better understand and assess their climate risks can integrate climate risk management into their strategic planning and can position themselves to more easily access green financing.

Assessing and effectively disclosing climate risks may not be a straightforward exercise.

Rigorous processes will be required for companies to align with the TCFD’s core elements, including governance, strategy, risk management, and metrics and targets.
