ities and businesses are developing new strategies to address the impacts of climate change, and increased frequency and intensity of severe weather events has made responsiveness to such threats more urgent. At the same time, investors and other financial stakeholders are becoming more interested in understanding how physical, liability, and transition risks could affect financial markets. That trend led to the development of a voluntary disclosure framework by the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) in 2017. However, climate change strategies are not only about mitigating risks as investments in climate change solutions can also present economic opportunities. In this webinar, panelists will review recent changes in how climate risks and opportunities are disclosed and discussed with a range of stakeholders.
