This webinar explores the latest thinking on the pricing of physical climate risk. The impacts of climate change affect the financial system and are a risk to individual organisations. However, the large-scale and long-term nature of these impacts often leads organisations to determine incorrectly that climate change is not relevant to today's decisions.

Climate-related reporting seeks to proactively address the climate risks to financial stability. The Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) was created in 2015 by the Financial Stability Board (FSB) to develop consistent climate-related financial risk disclosures for use by companies, banks, and investors in providing information to stakeholders.
