TCFD: Taskforce on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures

TCFD Working Group

In line with its mission to address global issues through practical local action, the UN Global Compact Network UK is launching a Working Group to foster dialogue on the Task Force on Climate Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD WG). The Working Group will explore opportunities and issues arising from the TCFD, and support companies’ adoption of the recommendations.

The purpose of the TCFD WG is to:

  • bring participating UK Network members together with experts to explore issues arising from the TCFD;
  • support network members in implementing the recommendations; and
  • share good practices and identify concrete actions that companies, both individually and as a group, can take to make progress on disclosures.

Thank you to all those who have already registered their interest in the Working Group. Our first meeting will be held Wednesday 24th June, between 10am - 12pm BST. If you are interested in presenting your approach and/or experiences of implementing the TCFD recommendations at our first meeting, or if you would like to find out more and/or register your interest in the WG, please contact our Climate Action Programme Manager, Amy Collins.

VIRTUAL WORKSHOP: Implementing the TCFD Recommendations - 22 May 2020

The UN Global Compact Network UK hosted a virtual workshop on the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) with The Prince's Accounting for Sustainability Project (A4S). The workshop took place online on 22 May 2020.

Designed for finance and sustainability professionals across all sectors, the workshop focused on the practical steps teams could take to adopt the TCFD recommendations. Participants:

  • Gained a broader understanding of the TCFD, the latest trends, and findings on adoption of the recommendations;
  • Heard from Jonathan Dunn, Head of International Policy and Planning at Anglo American on how to start implementing the recommendations and the company's own experiences (focus on scenario analysis);
  • Developed a broader understanding of climate risks and opportunities.

We encourage all those who were unable to attend the workshop to watch the recording here.
