Disclosure, Measurement, Management and Mitigation of Climate Change Risk for Companies (DeRisk-CO)


This research and outreach project aims at engaging firms regarding the climate disclosure issue. In particular, throughout webinars, workshops policy briefs and scientific papers, DeRisk-CO intends to raise firms’ and financial operators’ awareness on climate-related risks and opportunities and their financial impact, contribute the scientific debate on the matter, and monitor the evolution of the scenario analysis tools and methodologies.
DeRisk-CO’s activities focus on four main themes – governance, strategy, risk management, metrics and targets – included in the Recommendations set by the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosure (TCFD, June 2017) of the Financial Stability Board (FSB), restated by the European Commission in “Guidelines on non-financial reporting” (2017/C 215/01) related to the 2014/95/EU Directive, then integrated by the update of the Non-Binding Guidelines on Non-Financial Reporting published by the European Commission (June 2019). In this framework, the project engages firms and financial operators, creating occasions during which the stakeholders can confront themselves on the best practices to integrate climate-related risks and opportunities assessment and management into their internal decision processes.
