UNEP FI, together with twenty of the world’s leading investors, has worked over the past year to develop scenarios, models, and metrics to enable scenario-based, forward-looking assessment and disclosure of climate-related risks and opportunities.

The work will contribute to the industry’s advancement of the recommendations of the Financial Stability Board’s (FSB) Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).

Investors, together with a specialized consulting firm (Carbon Delta), support from UNEP FI and expertise from the field have trialed their portfolios against a range of climate scenarios and co-developing a metric for determining the value at risk for equity, bond, and real estate portfolios.
