The demand for disclosure of climate-related risks and opportunities is increasing in the financial sector and firms are responding by implementing reporting frameworks following guidelines like the Recommendations set out by the Task Force on Climate Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).

An effective evaluation methodology of the financial impacts of climate-related risks and opportunities is a priority for disclosing firms and investors. A certain number fo think-tanks and research centers already begun to provide the market systems and tools fit for matching the information demand, particularly for what concerns the energy transition risks and the physical risks related to climate change.

Through the participation of high-level international experts, the workshop will present some of the most interesting instruments and methods in this field. The workshop will be completed by a round table during which asset managers will discuss the importance of assessing in the most precise manner the degree of risk associated to companies’ business activities.

The DeRisk-CO project, developed at FEEM, aims at mapping and evaluating the firms’ approaches to climate-related risks and opportunities, so as to stimulate a scientifically founded debate on the relevance of disclosing climate information, and to give valuable insights for Italian businesses.

This workshop is part of a series of events promoted by the Italian Sustainable Investment Forum (ItaSif) within the SRI week.
