DeRisk-CO is a research and outreach project seeking to engage firms in climate disclosure issues. In particular, DeRisk-CO intends to raise firms’ and financial operators’ awareness on climate-related risks and opportunities and their financial impact, contribute to the scientific debate on this 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), restated by the European Commission in “Guidelines on non-financial reporting” (2017/C 215/01) related to the 2014/95/EU Directive, and integrated by the update of the Non-Binding Guidelines on Non-Financial (June 2019). In this framework, the project engages the relevant stakeholders and organises events to discuss on the best practices to integrate climate-related risks and opportunities assessment and management into their internal decision processes.
