Presented by

David Carlin, TCFD and Climate Risk Lead (UNEP FI)

About this talk

In partnership with the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL), UNEP FI’s TCFD Programme has released two new reports designed to help financial actors manage climate risks and support client transitions to net-zero. This launch event will cover the key takeaways from the recently released reports. Experts from UNEP FI and CISL will provide guidance on principles for integrated assessment of physical and transition risks with sector-specific examples, as well as discuss best practices and recommendations for climate-related assessments with clients. The event will also feature a panel discussion with financial institutions on leading strategies for client engagement. Descriptions and links of the newly launched reports can be found below.

United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) is a partnership between United Nations Environment and the global financial sector created in the wake of the 1992 Earth Summit with a mission to promote sustainable finance. More than 240 financial institutions, including banks, insurers, and investors, work with UN Environment to understand today’s environmental, social and governance challenges, why they matter to finance, and how to actively participate in addressing them. UNEP FI’s work also includes a strong focus on policy – by facilitating country-level dialogues between finance practitioners, supervisors, regulators and policy-makers, and, at the international level, by promoting financial sector involvement in processes such as the global climate negotiations.
