Webinar: Climate-Related Financial Risk Disclosure

CAN-Rac's Webinar-Workshop Series

January 29, 2019 - 8:00am to 9:00am

In this webinar, CAN-Rac hosts a training session on the Taskforce on Climate-Related Risk Disclosure (TCFD) with members of CDP, formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project, and the Climate Disclosure Standards Board

At the foundation of the TCFD recommendations is the need for corporations to disclose on a quarterly basis, through financial statements that are subject to auditing, any risk that poses a material risk to its business. What is viewed as material has emanated from "information that an average investor would deem to be relevant to making investment decision". In essence, materiality depends on what investors think is material; in order for climate-related risks to be considered material, it is critical that citizens have a basic level of knowledge and understanding of climate-related risks.

Join presenters Céline Bak, Founder & President of Analytica Advisors and an advisor to the CDP, and Michael Zimonyi, Policy & External Affairs Manager of the CDSB Secretariat, for this in-depth exploration of climate-related financial risk disclosure. 

Webinar presentations are in English, the Q&A parts will be facilitated in both French and English. You can ask questions in both languages.
