Climate Risk & Opportunity: Aligning with a low carbon economy

July 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm UTC+0

As the world struggles to find a new normal, governments and companies are under even greater pressure to demonstrate climate resilience by prioritising climate related risks and opportunities. The FCA is proposing a rule that would require all premium listed companies to comply with the recommendations of the 2017 Financial Stability Board’s Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) recommendations or explain why not. The rule takes effects for accounting periods beginning on or after 1st January 2021. This means that companies will have to become increasingly forward-looking as they face increased scrutiny from investors and regulators.

This webinar will cover three main topics related to climate change performance:

  1. Carbon footrpinting: Systems that provide robust reporting of climate change performance to key stakeholders on an ongoing basis. This should include a materiality assessment of wider value chain GHG emissions.
  2. Targets and abatement: Setting credible reduction targets including science-based targets (generally using the Science-Based Target Initiative’s (SBTi) guidelines which maps out a gross emissions reduction pathway for companies & sectors), and net-zero target, which combines gross reductions with offsetting solutions.
  3. Climate resilience: Climate scenario analysis and TCFD response.
