A flowchart describing HOW CLIMATE-RELATED FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE REGULATIONS CREATE CLIMATE-RELATED RISKSMandatory climate risk disclosure is becoming part of the rapidly changing regulatory landscape. The new requirements have the potential to significantly change how public companies measure, report, and address risks from climate change. The purpose behind many of the new disclosure requirements are to help companies mitigate financial and physical risks from climate change, while also creating frameworks for clear, consistent, and comprehensive climate-related information that are useful to investors. Many of the required standardized disclosures that have been adopted are in line with the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosure (TCFD), which in 2017 provided recommendations for transparency around government, strategy, risk management, and metrics/targets.
