45-minute masterclass: TCFD implementation for your business

Event Date: 23/06/2021 1:00 pm

With the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) rapidly rising up the corporate agenda, this masterclass-style webinar session will provide key information, insights and inspiration when it comes to effectively implementing the TCFD recommendations within your organisation.

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?

This masterclass will seek to answer all of those questions and more. The masterclass will include 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. 

The masterclass is hosted in association with edie’s Sustainable Investment Conference 2021 – a two-day virtual event which takes place on 13-14 July 2021. The event unites corporates, asset managers and asset owners for frank discussion around disclosure priorities, roadblocks and innovations. Find out more and secure your ticket here.
