What are the Key Themes Driving Investor Climate Reporting?
In the context of the climate crisis, investors need insightful climate research, ratings, and data. Investors must balance the physical risks of climate change alongside the transition risks of moving to a net-zero economy.
In particular, regulatory guidance like the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) has placed urgency on the investment community to take a more active role to address global climate change. The TCFD framework is becoming increasingly important as it is shifting from a voluntary approach to being the main global regulatory response to climate risk, with many regions now mandating it for compulsory climate reporting.
