Over the past decades, Governments worldwide have implemented various corporate climate change reporting requirements to track national emissions, boost climate finance and ensure a just and stable transition to a low-carbon economy.

The Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures, convened by the G20 Financial Stability Board has brought a new level of interest to this issue from corporates, the finance industry and financial regulators. This side event will outline the need for climate change reporting, introduce latest policy developments in corporate climate change reporting, present existing regulatory best practice and introduce the most widely used reporting approaches by companies.

An understanding of the value of reporting and disclosure to government, clear actions for attendees to engage with relevant finance ministry colleagues and others to understand how they can implement the TCFD recommendations and/or other corporate reporting requirements.

Audience: Primarily policymakers, most likely from climate/environment/foreign affairs ministries
