Climate change and extreme weather trends are recognised as key risks facing the insurance, savings and investment industry. Policymakers and regulators are scrutinising the actions of asset owners, with insurers increasingly being expected to disclose their climate-related risks and activities to support the transition to a low carbon economy. The Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) is the leading framework to consistently report physical, liability and transition risks associated with climate change.
Aviva Investors are a member of the TCFD and have served since its formation in 2015. Aviva Investors has been actively engaging to promote this initiative from the outset, and we have supported our parent company, Aviva plc, in their annual climate-related financial disclosures; recently completed for 2019 for the fourth consecutive year. In this webinar, learn more about the importance of TCFD for your business, what the requirements are to report against the framework and the lessons we have learned from our experience, including in particular hearing from the project lead at Aviva plc, and a case study from Canadian ICMIF member The Co-operators on their TCFD journey.
