What is TCFD?


The Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) is a reporting framework established by the Financial Stability Board (FSB) to enhance transparency on the financial implications of climate-related risks and opportunities. By adopting TCFD guidelines within their annual report, organisations can provide investors, lenders, and insurers with clear, comprehensive and high-quality information to aid their long-term financial decisions. The eleven disclosure recommendations are structured around four core elements: Governance, Strategy, Risk Management and Metrics & Targets.

McGrady Clarke assists clients in not just meeting the mandatory requirements of TCFD reporting, but with embedding sustainability within the organisation to produce industry-leading disclosures. Our technical experts can help you navigate the complex requirements of TCFD.

Benefits of Conducting TCFD Disclosures


Conducting TCFD-aligned disclosures offers multiple benefits for organisations, beyond mandatory compliance.

Performing evaluations of potential climate-related risks and opportunities promotes enhanced risk management procedures and strategic alignment, allowing future risks to be identified, assessed and managed more effectively. Our scenario analyses conducted by our in-house data scientists can assist organisations in building strategic resilience, whilst being prepared for evolving regulatory frameworks.

Our high-quality financial disclosures promote corporate transparency, and can lead to increased access to capital and wider stakeholder engagement. Disclosing climate financials and a wider sustainability strategy can provide a competitive edge and enhanced reputation, differentiating your organisation against your peers with a forward-thinking approach to sustainability.

Our
Process

Stage 1

Comprises of a sophisticated sustainability gap analysis, conducted through our bespoke implementation workshops, interview process and questionnaires across a range of departments, to identify strengths, weaknesses and recommendations for the upcoming TCFD report. 

Stage 2

Builds upon the output of Stage 1, by undertaking a comprehensive climate risks and opportunities assessment. We identify both physical and transitional risks, and define their probability, impact, scale and time horizon. Our data-driven scenario analysis allows our clients to identify potential financial implications of individual risks, and combined with our risk mitigation recommendations provides a robust and holistic approach to climate strategy. This is then detailed in our TCFD disclosure report by our seasoned report writers.
