Available to watch on-demand: edie's masterclass on TCFD implementation for business
edie's latest webinar took place this week and focused on how businesses can get to grips with the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). It is now available to watch on repeat.
Established in 2015, the TCFD is a market-driven initiative provides a suite of recommendations for voluntary and consistent climate-related financial risk disclosures in mainstream company filings.
The TCFD recommendations are fast becoming one of the most business-critical frameworks for businesses to use when developing long-term financial and sustainability plans. The Covid-19 pandemic has served to highlight the need for organisations to factor external risks – such as the climate emergency – into their strategy. Meanwhile, the recent surge of corporate net-zero carbon commitments and the forthcoming COP26 climate summit have solidified the consensus around the need for businesses to urgently implement the TCFD recommendations.
So, what exactly are those recommendations and how do they impact your business? What does a great TCFD implementation strategy look like? And – as the UK Government explores making the TCFD recommendations mandatory for some, how can you ensure you stay ahead of the disclosure curve?
edie's latest masterclass sought to answer all of those questions and more. The masterclass includes an expert presentation on the TCFD recommendations and implementation, followed by a live audience open Q&A, allowing you to have your TCFD questions answered by our experts.
