The demand for disclosure of climate-related risks and opportunities is constantly increasing, and firms, which until today have responded by applying guidelines such as those of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD, 2017) and the updated version of the Non-Binding Guidelines on Non-Financial Reporting of the European Commission (NBG, 2019), will have to comply to an additional set of requirements: the EU Taxonomy and the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive.

The identification, assessment, and management of climate-related risks and opportunities is a complex challenge, in particular when it comes to evaluate their financial impact on the company’s activity (and vice versa). Hence, as it is becoming a priority for firms and investors, think tanks, research centres, and data providers are proposing several tools and approaches to carry out such evaluations, considerably widening the available instruments.

In this context, on November 19, 2021 Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei, in collaboration with the Italian Sustainable Investment Forum and Chapter Zero Italy, organises, for the fourth year, an online conference where high-level international experts will present some of the most interesting methodologies and approaches in this field. The presentations will be followed by a virtual round table and a Q&A session to discuss the impact that these assessment methodologies may have on the financial sector and on the companies’ business activities.
