CLC spring meeting
Seminar - Strengthening organisations’ climate leadership
The seminar will introduce three key tools for systematic climate strategy, business development and reporting:
1) The recommendations from The Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) by the Financial Stability Board. TCFD recommends that preparers of climate-related financial disclosures provide such disclosures in their mainstream annual financial filings. The use of TCFD recommendations is growing rapidly as main investors are recommending and requiring them. For example Black Rock has sent TCFD – letter to more than 100 companies regarding their engagement on TCFD. Here are the companies committed to TCFD reporting with We Mean Business – network.
2) Science Based Targets (SBT) by UNGC, CDP, WWF and WRI. Science-based targets provide companies with a clearly defined pathway to future-proof growth by specifying how much and how quickly they need to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. Currently there are over 500 major companies applying the SBT method.
3) Carbon handprint by VTT. Whereas carbon footprints describe the emissions and negative climate impacts of products or organisations, carbon handprints show the positive climate impact that the product or organisation can create.
