Making Sense of the Mandatory Climate Risk Disclosure – How to Stay Ahead

Institute of Institute of International Bankers (IIB) Webinar Recording

As the impact of climate change accelerates, companies are facing new and complex risks.  While many companies are proactively reporting on climate change risk, investors are calling for standardized reporting that increases comparability, reliability and transparency of this information. The SEC’s proposed climate risk disclosure attempts to balance investor demand while creating flexibility for reporting companies

Guidehouse, in partnership with the Institute of International Bankers (IIB), recently hosted the webcast, Making Sense of the Mandatory Climate Risk Disclosure – How to Stay Ahead where we addressed the following:

  • How to prepare for mandatory climate disclosures
  • Potential gaps in current reporting processes
  • Challenges in building a comprehensive enterprise data set that includes climate risk

 

Despite the fact that it does seem like new disclosure rules are coming out all the time, we are starting to see a convergence around certain standards, which I think can provide financial institutions with a foundation for climate risk reporting. Most of these requirements coming out across jurisdictions are substantially aligned with the task force for climate related financial disclosures.
