As part of the Corporate Reporting Dialogue Better Alignment Project these roundtables across Europe will focus on identifying current confusion and barriers to effective reporting on climate, with respect to the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures. In addition, participants will discuss opportunities for better alignment in wider ESG reporting and share insights on how to best integrate financial and non-financial reporting going forwards.
The roundtables cater to those who are already familiar with ESG reporting.
This report presents what Carbon Tracker believes companies would be capable of disclosing, if they were to apply their best efforts. A fossil fuel company’s ability to generate future net cash inflows is largely dependent on its ability to continue to find new economically recoverable hydrocarbon resources and develop these into producing assets; a process which requires significant ongoing capital expenditure. Carbon Tracker research has shown that it is future resources and reserves that have not yet been developed into producing assets that are at greatest risk of stranding in a 2°C world. However, current accounting and disclosure practices offer investors little visibility over this.
The model disclosure aims to give investors transparency over the long-term climate-related risks that the sector is exposed to by focusing on the exploration activities and the decision-making process employed by management when approving reserves and resources for development.
Following November 2018 boardroom briefings held by Baker McKenzie, Ndevr Environmental and AECOM on the recommendations from the TCFD, the following discussion paper has been provided on how business leaders can meet their legal obligations to assess and disclose the financial risks and opportunities linked to climate change.
By offering how-to guidance, this publication aims to help companies enhance the robustness, consistency, comparability, and utility of TCFD implementation and reporting through SASB and CDSB’s market-tested frameworks, standards and resources. Regardless of whether an organization has a sophisticated approach to managing climate risks and opportunities or is just getting started, it can use this guidance to move forward in supporting improved decision-making, enhanced market resilience, and more sustainable economic growth.

In 2018, the Brazilian Federation of Banks (FEBRABAN) implemented the first phase of an institutional project to support Brazilian banks in the adoption of the recommendations published by the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) of the Financial Stability Board. A Roadmap with two types of actions was developed: (i) collective actions by the banking sector through FEBRABAN; and (ii) individual actions by the banks. The full report, in Portuguese, is available at FEBRABAN website.
This report was developed in partnership with SITAWI Finance for Good and with the support of a group of FEBRABAN member banks.

In the TCFD recommendations, companies are asked to implement scenario analysis to figure out their climate-related risks and opportunities when they disclose their strategies to investors. However, because there were few examples which explained and disclosed the process of scenario analysis, the Japanese Ministry of Environment (MOEJ) started the support program for companies to analyze their own climate risks and opportunities in line with the TCFD recommendations in August 2018. In the program, MOEJ selected 6 Japanese companies by focusing on the sectors with the highest likelihood of climate-related financial impacts.
Based on the knowledge and experience through the program, MOEJ hereby releases the practical guide for scenario analysis in line with TCFD recommendations. This is the first practical guide to show how companies should implement scenario analysis to integrate climate-related risk and opportunities into their own management strategies by utilizing TCFD recommendations.
