Implementing TCFD recommendations

To bring climate risks and resilience into the heart of financial decision-making, climate disclosure must become comprehensive, climate risk management must be transformed, and investing for a 1.5 degree world must go mainstream.

Although the private sector has made rapid progress on reporting and risk management, more is needed. Over the next few years, companies, their banks, insurers and investors must: 1. Increase the quantity and quality of disclosures; 2. Refine disclosure metrics to determine which ones are most decision-useful and 3. Spread knowledge on how to assess strategic resilience and risk.

This session will dive into the challenges and opportunities associated with the implementation of TCFD (Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosure) recommendations, sharing perspectives from experts on risk management and scenario analysis, and presenting insights from investment, insurance and banking practice.

Speakers:

  • Antonio Carrillo Doblado, Head of Climate & Energy, LafargeHolcim
  • Andreas Kusche, Investor Relations Manager, Daimler AG
