“G19 merely point out reporting on climate risks”

Tagesspiegel Background

G20 members commend private commitment to climate risk reporting but do not universally recommend it in the climate and energy action plan, which was annexed to the G20 Hamburg summit leaders’ communiqué, writes Dagmar Dehmer for Tagesspiegel Background. The plan merely pointed out that the industry-led Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) had published recommendations on voluntary disclosures of climate-related financial risks by corporates, writes Dehmer.
