EcoAct hosts TCFD Workshop at the Responsible Business Summit NYC
Do you understand how the Taskforce for Climate Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) recommendations will impact how companies address climate change? EcoAct will be hosting a workshop at the Responsible Business Summit in New York on March 27th with Simon Messenger, Managing Director at the Climate Disclosure Standards Board, and Chuck Melko, Chief Accounting Officer for Hannon Armstrong, to provide attendees with strategies and case studies how companies are integrating these into governance, strategy, risk management, and targets.
Key standards and bodies, such as the G20, PRI, CDP, and GRI among many others are now actively integrating these recommendations into their initiatives as investors increasingly require climate related risk and management in their company assessments.
