What does TCFD mean?
TCFD stands for the Task-Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures. Created in 2015 by the Basel-based Financial Stability Board (FSB), the TCFD aims to promote international financial stability.
Although the TCFD began as a set of voluntary recommendations, it has now become part of the regulatory framework in many places such as the European Union, Singapore, South Africa and Japan.
In other parts of the world, countries like New Zealand and the United Kingdom will demand that their financial institutions’ climate risk disclosures be in line with the TCFD’s recommendations by 2025.
As a result of these changes, the for TCFD jobs has risen exponentially, and will only continue to grow as the global economy works to achieving net zero or a net positive future.
