On Monday, 14 June our Board Leadership Center webinar on Climate Change took place.

During this webinar we provided insights on the following topics:

  • Setting the scene: Sustainability has moved from the periphery to the heart of business operations in recent years. Where are we today in terms of the conversation around ESG?
  • Task Force on Climate-related Finance Disclosures (TCFD): The TCFD was founded in 2015 to help identify the information needed by companies, investors, and lenders to appropriately assess climate related risks and opportunities. What risks and opportunities has the TCFD identified? What are its recommendations? What challenges do we see companies facing? How can boards use the TCFD framework to start their climate change journey?  
  • Climate risk in the boardroom: Climate risk is a strategic issue. How boards can and should engage on the topic and what does it mean from a board governance perspective? What questions should board members be asking of themselves and of management?
  • A conversation with Véronique Toully: How does this all come together in practice? What has been UCB’s journey?
