In the wake of the world rapidly transitioning to a low carbon economy, Company and Director responsibilities are becoming a major focal for financial regulators. Companies are being forced to respond to these developments or risk being left behind or becoming exposed to unforeseen litigation. Directors need to adopt a more proactive approach to considering and disclosing foreseeable climate-related risks to the companies they oversee. If they do not then they are at risk of breaching duty of care, skill and diligence obligations.
WHY DO YOU NEED A CLIMATE RELATED FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE REPORT?
The Financial Stability Board Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) in June 2017 released recommendations for voluntary climate-related financial disclosures. These recommendations provided a framework for investors and companies to appropriately assess and price climate-related risk and opportunities. These recommendations have been embraced by APRA and ASIC as the preferred market standard for voluntary climate change-related disclosures.
Further, ASIC have now updated Regulatory Guides 228 and 247, whilst APRA expects climate risk to be assessed within prudential risk management standards CPS 220 and SPS 220.
What does this mean
If you are exposed to the weather, you are exposed to climate change; and need to understand, then address these risks in your company reporting’s. Company’s and directors who consider climate change risks actively, disclose them properly and respond appropriately will reduce exposure to liability.
