Helping you to future-proof your business

TCFD reporting may seem daunting, but don’t panic! Many businesses have the same concerns about first-time reporting as you do.

We know that not everybody comes into TCFD reporting with technical training, so we’ve written this how-to guide to introduce the process to beginners.

We’ve incorporated the hard-earned wisdom of leading experts in the field to produce this blueprint, helping you devise a plan to assess effectively how your business can thrive in a world altered by the climate crisis.

TCFD reporting in six steps

Step 1: Assemble your team

A multidisciplinary team will enable you to identify and handle climate-related risks across the business effectively.

Step 2: Set your scenarios

Identify the climate risks facing your business over a series of time frames and different warming scenarios.

Step 3: Physical risk assessment

Collect and map data to determine what and where physical risks of climate change may impact your business.

Step 4: Transition assessment

Assess how socio-economic fluctuations, resulting from society’s response to climate change, could impact your business.

Step 5: Define metrics

Assign a monetary value to the climate risks you have identified and agree on goals for your climate transition plan.

Step 6: Complete report

Present findings to your board of directors, agree on what to disclose and produce your external-facing report for publication.

“TCFD reporting was produced by the market, for the market. As a result, it isn’t just a compliance exercise but a significant opportunity to enhance long-term corporate resilience in the face of multifaceted and enduring change.”

Danielle King, Principal Climate Change Consultant, RSK group

“TCFD reporting looks at your holistic business. So partner with your entire supply chain to ensure you’re on the same page when it comes to the long-term plan to adapt and mitigate climate risks.”

David Roos, Group Compliance, Quality and Safety Director, Boparan

“We can expect a wide range in the breadth and depth of TCFD reports for the time being. As this process evolves from a practical standpoint, companies should be digesting feedback from stakeholders, including investors, to better understand the expectations and what information is most critical.”

Adam Heltzer, Head of ESG, Ares Management Corporation

Survey: Is TCFD a strategic tool or a box-ticking exercise?

In February 2022, we surveyed 100 C-level executives across the UK to assess their attitudes towards mandatory TCFD reporting. We sought to understand:

⇲ Are boards discussing climate risks?
⇲ Will TCFD encourage more senior-level discussions on the climate crisis?
⇲ How will businesses deal with a lack of guidance on how much to disclose?
⇲ How much are businesses budgeting for TCFD?
⇲ Is TCFD seen as a strategic tool or a box-ticking exercise?
