Since 2020, PRI signatories have been required to report to the PRI on several indicators regarding their management of risks and opportunities related to climate change. These indicators are modelled on the disclosure framework of the Financial Stability Board’s Task Force on Climate-related Disclosures (TCFD).
The TCFD and its recommendations have been endorsed by over 1,000 organisations in 55 countries, including financial firms managing over $138 trillion in assets. Beginning in 2021, public disclosure of PRI signatories’ reporting on these indicators is mandatory, and signatories’ responses will be scored.
