We are offering this course at a discounted price of US$360 until July 31, 2021.   This introductory course is for board members, executives and anyone who oversees or contributes to risk disclosures, including ESG reports, in their companies. Over the last few years, companies have been under increasing pressure to improve and expand their climate-related disclosures. The Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) is one of the most supported disclosure frameworks, with the endorsement of more than 1,500 organizations globally (including 1,340 companies with a market capitalization of $12.6 trillion, and financial institutions responsible for assets for $150 trillion*).   TCFD has gathered momentum and widespread support from investors, insurance companies, financial institutions, and governments for its focus on connecting climate change and the transition to a low carbon economy with financial risks and opportunities. Energy companies worldwide are choosing TCFD as a framework to guide their climate-related disclosures.  Applying the TCFD framework to a company in the oil and gas industry has several unique challenges and complexities.   Whether your company is public or private, a producer, midstream or a supplier, you will benefit from understanding how providers of capital (e.g., investors, lenders and insurance companies) use climate-related information to assess your company’s resilience to climate change.    *Source:  TCFD 2020 Status Report (September 22, 2020)  This live course is delivered by Rosa Rivero of Responsibility Matters, in partnership with JWN Energy and the Daily Oil Bulletin.    Who should attend?
