Webinar: Where does climate change feature on the CFO’s post-Covid agenda?

Before Covid-19 turned the world upside down, over 1,000 businesses—representing a market capitalisation of $12 trillion—had committed to build a more resilient financial system by improving their reporting on climate change and their impact on the environment in line with TCFD recommendations. Fast forward six months into 2020, and economic activity has plummeted, corporate revenues declined, and levels of government debt are on the rise. Many organisations are reordering their priorities.

Is climate risk slipping down the CFO’s agenda, or is now the time to embed carbon neutrality at the heart of your business—as a condition of government funding, and at the core of a purpose-led strategy?

Join Nick Stewart for a webinar for Finance Leaders on 1 July, 13:00 – 14:00 BST with guests Jeff Davies, Group Chief Financial Officer, Legal & General and Martin Brookes, Investment Director at Legal & General. We are looking forward to hearing their perspectives from a financial services, analysts’ and stakeholder point of view having released a leading set of TCFD results earlier this year. We will discuss topics such as:

  • Where does TCFD rank on the priority list of CFOs across industries considering the different Covid-19 scenarios for the mid and long-term?
  • How can CFOs keep the momentum and connect the climate risk agenda (back) into the business?
  • What are the drivers for success to implement TCFD, and have they changed?

This webinar has now finished.
