Climate change is affecting businesses now and this impact will only intensify into the future. At the same time, the transition to a just, low carbon economy is presenting new market opportunities. Investors, insurers, and other business stakeholders need a robust understanding of how these risks and opportunities will affect companies across their operations and/or portfolios, and the efforts of affected companies and/or investees in responding and managing climate change impacts. In particular, investors are asking companies to disclose their climate risks and opportunities in alignment with the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
In this webinar we will present WSP’s approach to align with the TCFD recommendations and present results of WSP’s recent TCFD thought leadership. We will demonstrate practical examples of implementing the TCFD recommendations using recent client examples. We will walk through how we use TCFD gap analysis and peer benchmarking to help clients enhance their governance, strategy, and risk management of climate-related risks and opportunities, and how we use climate scenario analysis to enhance sustainability and climate resilience.
