Companies too often make the mistake of thinking climate change is a long-term issue, but it’s actually affecting decisions today, according to a report by a global commission set to evaluate transparency into financial climate risks and opportunities.
To better understand current climate-related financial disclosure practices and how they have evolved, the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD or Task Force) reviewed—using artificial intelligence technology—reports for over 1,000 large companies in multiple sectors and regions over a three-year period. In addition, the Task Force conducted a survey on companies’ efforts to implement the TCFD recommendations as well as users’ views on the usefulness of climate-related financial disclosures for decision-making.
Nearly 800 organizations have now expressed support for the TCFD and its recommendations

With growing interest in global warming's impact on business, we’ve built a collection of mapping tools to help companies, investors and researchers better visualize climate-related risks & opportunities.
In today’s digital world transparency is a given, but evidence is now critical. The TCFD recommendations and the SDGs will change sustainability reporting adding further pressure on companies to disclose validated data, quantify impact and showcase future resilience.
Financial players and their investors have much to gain from the shift toward greater sustainability. These investments offer a dual benefit: they lower emissions, speeding the transition to a low-carbon economy, and they can make (or save) money. People are increasingly aware of the first two pillars of sustainable investing -- risk identification and transparency. Now we need to inform them about the third: the need to drive capital toward sustainable opportunities, both at home and internationally.
Over one year ago the FSB Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) developed recommendations that help companies disclose climate-related risks and opportunities in their financial filings and help investors make better-informed decisions.
