Climate-Related Financial Disclosures: Putting the TCFD Recommendations into Practice (FR)

Climate change presents significant risks and opportunities, but in 2018 the Canadian Securities Administrators found that investors are largely unsatisfied with climate disclosure practices among Canadian companies. The International Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), led by Mike Bloomberg and Mark Carney, has developed a voluntary disclosure framework to help companies improve their disclosures, and to help investors understand their exposure to material climate risks. This session will explore how companies are incorporating the TCFD recommendations into their disclosure practices, and how investors can use these disclosures in their investment decisions.
