There is growing awareness that business and investor plans need to better address the growing physical and regulatory risks arising from climate change and climate policy. This Aldersgate Group event will debate how businesses and investors can improve their understanding of these risks and ensure this results in better informed decision making.
Following the publication of the UK government’s Green Finance Strategy and the expectation that all listed companies and large asset owners should disclose their climate-related risks and opportunities in line with the TCFD recommendations by 2022, this event will mark the launch of the Aldersgate Group’s latest policy briefing setting out the next steps to accelerate the adoption of TCFD compliant disclosure.
Featuring a keynote speech from the Chair of the Environment Agency Emma Howard Boyd and a multi-sector business panel, this event will debate why the climate change risk and resilience agenda is a critical issue for the business and investment community, how businesses and investors can more effectively understand and address these risks and whether the UK’s regulatory framework on climate disclosure needs to be strengthened in the coming years.
