BACKGROUND INFORMATION


Climate change is gearing up to have profound impacts on every business around the world.


In response to this growing threat, and following a pivotal speech by then governor of the Bank of England, Mark Carney, the Financial Stability Board convened the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) to develop consistent disclosure recommendations which will help companies, investors, lenders, and insurers identify and manage material risks associated with climate change.


The Taskforce issued its final recommendations in 2017 and they have since gained traction in financial regulations around the world, including with Bank Negara, which announced late last year that it will be implementing the TCFD recommendations for Malaysian companies.


Meanwhile here in Singapore, government-owned investment firm Temasek announced last October that the company will aim to halve greenhouse gas emissions of its entire portfolio by 2030.

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN


You will get an introduction to:

  • the eleven TCFD recommendations,
  • how they are going to affect your business
  • what opportunities they hold for your company as you prepare for a rapidly decarbonizing new economy.

Hear from Singtel, a Singapore 'TCFD pioneer' as they share their firsthand experience with implementing the recommendations.


Learn how financial technology is evolving to ensure that you develop meaningful metrics to provide management and the Board with actionable insights on climate-related risks specific to your company.
