Climate change and the transition to a lower-carbon economy have given rise to a multitude of new risks and opportunities. How can companies ensure that the financial implications of climate-related risks and opportunities are assessed and reported in a clear, comparable and consistent manner?

Welcome to a seminar with Curtis Ravenel, member of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures.

One of the most significant, and perhaps most misunderstood, risks that businesses face today relates to climate change. Therefore, a global task force set up by the G20 in 2015, and chaired by Michael R. Bloomberg, has developed a voluntary framework for companies to disclose the financial impact of climate-related risks and opportunities. In June 2017, the Task Force presented their final report, with four widely adoptable recommendations applicable to companies across sectors and jurisdictions.

Curtis Ravenel, Global Head of Sustainable Business & Finance at Bloomberg, and member of the Task Force, will present the background to the report, the industry led development of the
recommendations and the report’s main conclusions. Current implementation and adoption initiatives will also be discussed, as well as how the recommendations may work together with other international initiatives in this area, and what challenges it may pose for financial firms.

The report will be commented by Stefan Palmqvist, chief economist at Finansinspektionen, Marie Baumgarts, Head of Sustainability at SEB, and Klas Tikkanen, CFO at Nordic Capital.

This meeting is co-organized with Finansinspektionen, The Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority, and will be held in English.
