The international ‘gold standard’

The TCFD’s 11-part recommendations were released in 2017, and have since become the internationally-recognized gold standard for climate-related financial disclosure, with major economies like the United Kingdom and New Zealand enshrining them in law, and the United States likely to follow suit

Since release, more than 3,000 organizations have pledged their support for the TCFD’s recommendations, agreeing they provide “a useful framework to increase transparency on climate-related risks and opportunities within financial markets”. Hailing from 87 different countries, supporters have pledged to implement the of the TCFD’s 11-point proposals internally and to champion their adoption by other organizations and sectors within their economy.

Demand for disclosure

The global support for the TCFD’s framework signals the international business community’s growing appreciation for the importance of divulging risk in a consistent, decision-useful format. It mirrors the results of Cervest’s 2021 climate-related financial disclosure survey, which found that more than 60% companies are planning to disclose their climate risks over the next 12 months. 

Climate-related financial disclosures have a crucial role to play as our world adapts to the effects of climate change. By providing decision-useful intelligence to investors, insurers, regulators, consumers and other stakeholders, disclosure supports accurate risk assessments, more efficient capital allocation, and more effective strategic planning, all of which helps communities and organizations embrace climate resilience.
