UNEP FI's TCFD Programmes: upcoming climate risk working groups and initiatives

Presented by

David Carlin, TCFD Programme Lead, UNEP FI

About this talk

Over the past 5 years, UNEP FI has run a series of pilot programs to assist financial institutions in implementing the TCFD framework and issuing meaningful climate disclosures. Over 100 banks, investors, and insurers from all around the world have participated in these pilots. Participants have explored topics including climate assessment tools, transition scenarios, climate risk management, physical risk data, climate stress testing, and the economic impacts of climate change. The pilot programs have leveraged the convening power of the UN for institutions to share good practices with peers across the industry. In addition, the pilots have been supported by nearly a over a dozen technical partners from climate modelers to climate risk experts. The next working groups and regional initiatives on climate risk will begin in Spring 2022. This session is an opportunity for firms to learn about the planned outputs, topics, and partners that will comprise these new initiatives and also indicate interest in participating.

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.
