These are assessments by organisations of the financial implications of the climate-related risks and opportunities they face.

provides an overview of climate-related financial disclosures and TCFD recommendations
outlines how users of disclosures can set effective objectives
provides practical guidance to help users interpret disclosures organisations have made
Collaboration between specialists
Speaking about the release of the guide, lead author, IFoA President-elect Louise Pryor, said:
“There are already many resources for those who prepare climate-related disclosures, but much less focus on the users of the disclosures.
“This guide reflects the fruitful collaboration between actuaries and sustainability specialists who utilise their complementary experience for the benefit of all potential users of TCFD disclosures. We hope this guide supports users to feel confident in understanding disclosures and in applying the insights obtained.”
“Disclosing under TCFD recommendations is increasingly prevalent and in future may become mandatory for some organisations.
“This means the ability to effectively use and interpret other organisations’ TCFD disclosures looks set to be a key skill for both government and the private sector. I’m very pleased to have played a part in the production of a guide to help users with that goal.”
