TCFD 101 – Getting started with climate-related financial reporting
TCFD 101 provides an overview of what climate-related reporting is and why it is important. It will also provide participants with the global and regional context and focus on the initial steps on how to address the TCFD recommendations.
By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
- Explain the financial risks & opportunities associated with climate change, and the importance of climate-related financial disclosure.
- Understand the key elements of climate-related financial disclosure and outline the characteristics of good practice.
- Identify the initial steps organisations need to take to implement the recommendations of the TCFD.
The TCFD training programme is facilitated in collaboration with the Nairobi Stock Exchange (NSE) and is financially supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies and IFC.
