DunPort Capital Management is pleased to declare its public support for the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), joining more than 1,800 organizations in demonstrating a commitment to building a more resilient financial system and safeguarding against climate risk through better disclosures.
The TCFD, chaired by Michael R. Bloomberg, founder of Bloomberg LP and Bloomberg Philanthropies, provides market participants with recommendations to address the financial impact of climate change on their business. By increasing transparency on financially material climate-related risks and opportunities the recommendations promote more informed financial decision-making by investors, lenders and others.
Supporters of the TCFD span the public and private sectors and include national governments, central banks, stock exchanges, credit rating agencies, financial organizations and private sector businesses from a variety of industries.
Widespread implementation of the TCFD recommendations will provide investors, lenders and insurance underwriters with consistent and relevant information to understand the economic risks and opportunities resulting from climate change. Increased disclosures in line with the recommendations across sectors and geographies will help global markets make more efficient capital allocation decisions and adjust appropriately to the disruptive effects of global climate change.
Implementing the TCFD recommendations provides companies with:
• Easier or better access to capital by increasing investors’ and lenders’ confidence that climate-related risks are appropriately assessed and managed;
• Better ability to meet existing disclosure requirements by reporting material information in financial filings;
• Increased awareness and understanding of climate-related risks and opportunities, resulting in better risk management and more informed strategic planning; and,
• The ability to proactively address investors’ demand for climate-related information in a framework that investors are increasingly asking for.
