Early engagement with the disclosure of climate risks and opportunities enables companies to get ahead of forthcoming regulations, particularly in Europe. It allows them to anticipate and respond to investor concerns, and play an active role in shaping the field and establishing the standards that will eventually become the norm. This EBRD-GCECA report, Advancing TCFD Guidance on Physical Climate Risks and Opportunities, aims to inform and support early adoption efforts of this kind, recognising that the field is evolving rapidly and that best practices will emerge over time.
