Overview

Climate-related risks are the key risk faced by business, finance and society over the next 10 years. The TCFD categorises the risks between physical, transition, and liability. Organisations use scenario analysis and stress tests to try to understand the impact of these risks, and regulatory bodies encourage businesses to disclose their findings in alignment with the TCFD’s recommendations.

Key learning objectives:

  • Define the TCFD and stranded asset risk

  • Describe the three climate-related risks, as categorised by the TCFD

  • Explain any regulatory actions and how climate-related risks can be quantified
