Developed in collaboration with the World Bank’s IFC and CDP, this training provides markets with pragmatic, live interactive training that helps participants at any level get started and build experience in climate-related disclosures. Given high demand for training on the four core pillars of the TCFD, we’re opening our TCFD training sessions to all market participants. In our live training sessions, experts are available to answer your questions on TCFD and reporting climate-related financial information to investors and other stakeholders. All participants that join our live sessions and complete a short online feedback survey afterwards will receive a CPD certification with credits towards your professional development.
We are running three different times for each training module to ensure that participants in any time zone can join. Please note that you should only register for one time zone option.
These sessions will be capped at 1000 participants and participants will only be admitted to the session on a first come first serve basis, so we recommend joining the sessions early to avoid disappointment. We recommend participating in both sessions (TCFD 101 and TCFD 102) to get the most out of this training program. Concepts that are introduced in TCFD 101 may not be re-explained in TCFD 102.

We highly recommend participants join the TCFD 101 session on 2 March prior to this session as concepts covered in TCFD 101 will not be re-introduced in TCFD 102. By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
✅Build a detailed understanding of the TCFD recommended disclosures and how to achieve practical implementation;
