TCFD-and-SDGs-Zurich

Date: Tuesday, 5 November 2019
Time:
10:00‐12:15 (followed by light lunch)
Location: Zürcher Kantonalbank, Atrium, Bahnhofstrasse 9, Zurich

Today, investors are increasingly expected to provide disclosure on sustainability‐related risks and align their investments with sustainable opportunities. Multiple international frameworks support and guide investors in fulfilling these expectations. Most notably and rapidly gaining attention amongst investors are the recommendations by the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) linking climate risks to a company’s financials, and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015.

At this event organised by the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and Swiss Sustainable Finance (SSF), the PRI will provide in-depth knowledge and guidance specifically related to these two frameworks, helping participants understand how to apply elements of the frameworks within their investment processes. In a subsequent panel discussion, experts and participants will interact and discuss both frameworks and their respective opportunities and challenges.

The event is free of charge and will be held in English.
