Episode 8: Waking up to the value of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)

February 28, 2020 | Podcast

The Activating Sustainability podcasts look at a host of sustainability topics, unpacking the issues, dissecting the solutions and inspiring others to share in our vision.

In this episode, Chris Peterson is joined by Anthesis colleagues and ESG specialists Don Reed in Boston and Tim Clare in London, to discuss the value that will be driven for companies reporting in line with the requirements of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). Driven by major figures such as Mark Carney and Michael Bloomberg, and now a mandatory requirement for signatories to the Principals for Responsible Investment, the TCFD will help firms to advance their assessment and planning for the risks and opportunities that climate change will present.

Chris, Don and Tim explore:

  • The background to the TCFD and how it is building in momentum;
  • The parallel development of policy and regulatory drivers and the reactions of markets to changing public sentiment on climate change;
  • How the TCFD practicably helps businesses to assess the implications of climate change for their operations and future strategy;
  • Why now is the time to act.
