Decoding Climate Disclosures for Financial Institutions 2024

Climate risk is now recognized as financial risk — and rightly so. Understanding climate risk, as well as climate opportunities, is a paramount concern for investors, regulators, and indeed, all economies striving towards sustainable business models and net-zero futures. This is why ESGTree has published a comprehensive guide for financial institutions to stay ahead of the game: Decoding Climate Disclosures for Financial Institutions. In this guide, we break down and simplify the much anticipated climate reporting proposals by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) and the European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG).

While the ESG regulatory landscape is evolving and complex, ESGTree is with you every step of the way. Between our Carbon Calculator, streamlined data collection platform, automated ESG reports, and benchmarking capabilities, we believe the climate challenge is really an opportunity for business excellence.
