It recommends that financial impacts of risks and opportunities created by climate change on business management should be assessed and disclosed by including governance, strategy, risk management, and metrics and targets as core elements of disclosures.
(Note2) TCFD Consortium was established in Japan on May 27,2019 which is a platform for promoting the responsible disclosure of climate-related financial information by businesses and the use of this information in the investment decisions of financial institutions.
