How can corporates and asset owners address climate risks and opportunities? In response to the Paris Agreement, two initiatives around climate risks and opportunities are gaining traction: The Framework for Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and Science Based Targets (SBT). Who is pushing for these initiatives? What are the implications for pension funds or corporations? And how do they interrelate?
South Pole and GreenBuzz organise an exclusive meeting to discuss these questions and to outline a roadmap for organisations.
The interactive workshop focuses on hands-on approaches and invites renowned companies and organisations to share their expertise.
