News from ECOFACT Q4 21
The global health crisis continues to influence society, the economy, and our daily lives. Yet, it is not the only topic with far-reaching impacts — climate change risks for example influence society, the economy, and our daily lives, too. These evolving policies will have consequences for all financial institutions and companies. What had been regarded as advanced practices a few years ago are suddenly becoming mere baseline expectations.
Our innovative approach to implementing the TCFD recommendations and building capacity to manage climate-related risks
Mandatory risk disclosure that is aligned with the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) is gaining momentum across the globe, both with regulators and institutional investors such as Blackrock.
Many financial institutions are looking for cost-efficient solutions that accomplish the following: Implement the TCFD’s framework, comply with local disclosure standards, integrate climate risks into risk management processes and define a framework to realize their climate commitments
Our innovative approach to regulatory implementation was developed together with a group of clients. Instead of outsourcing the work to a consultancy, you remain in the driver’s seat and build a knowledge base to steer change from within your organization.
Due to the success of our first implementation programs, we are happy to launch another round with a group of different clients in March and June 2022.
