Sustainable finance: what The Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures means for business


In line with Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) recommendations, April 2022 will see rules come into force obliging large companies in the UK to disclose climate-related financial information. This step will make the UK the first G20 nation to require companies to make their climate-related risks and opportunities public, and is part of an overall government roadmap which will be rolled out to the entire economy. By 2025, every UK-based business will have to make climate-related disclosures.

What can in-house counsel do to prepare their businesses for this new era of climate-based disclosures, and what does TCFD mean for the wider ESG agenda? In this webinar, our expert panel will discuss how companies can get their best foot forward and successfully incorporate the new requirements into their wider ESG plan. Among other talking points, we will cover:

  • Why TCFD is a priority for boards.
  • How businesses can implement the recommendations.
  • The other major ESG challenges for boards in a post-Cop26 world.
  • Challenges for specific industries.
