September 25, 2018 /3BL Media/ - World Environment Center and the Institute for energy, ecology and economy (DFGE) are hosting a webinar on October 12th (9:00AM EST / 3:00 PM CEST) exploring how the Financial Stability Board (FSB) Task Force on Climate - Financial Disclosures (TCFD) are affecting the business world.

The TCFD, chaired by Michael R. Bloomberg,  seeks to develop recommendations for voluntary climate-related financial disclosures that are consistent, comparable, reliable, clear, and efficient, and provide decision-useful information to lenders, insurers, and investors. It recognizes the work that has been done by NGOs in this space, however, as an industry-led initiative, the TCFD represents an opportunity to bring climate-related financial reporting to a mainstream audience. By August 2018, already over 390 organizations have expressed their support for the TCFD.
