Climate Related Financial Disclosures

Confidently disclose your climate strategy

Sharing information in a net-zero emissions world

There is growing demand worldwide fora rapid transition to a zero-carbon economy. In Australia, the AustralianPrudential Regulation Authority, the Australian Securities and InvestmentsCommission, the ASX, the Accounting Standards Review Board and the Reserve Bank of Australia - have all raised expectations for companies to manage climate risks in line with the Financial Stability Task Force on Climate-related FinancialDisclosures (TCFD).

Businesses now see the potential risks climate change poses and that climate change is a necessity rather than a differentiator. As a result, climate change policies are now changing the way companies operate.

Under the Paris Agreement, the world has committed to significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions and agreed to work toward total decarbonisation. However, this view has shifted expectations, and investors now want to know the physical risks of climate change, the value of high-carbon assets, and assess risks accurately.

Investors today expect disclosures that allow them to assess climate-related risks - and that's why market-leading companies are developing strategic disclosures for investors, regulators and share holders, as well as showing how they are taking advantage of emerging opportunities.
