    Beyond Disclosures: How to Hold Firms to Account Over Climate Change

    Beyond Disclosures: How to Hold Firms to Account Over Climate Change

    What are some of the limitations of the current disclosure frameworks for use by risk managers, and how can we tell when companies are saying one thing but doing another? 
    In recent months we have seen climate risk disclosure frameworks, such as the one set out by the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), increasing in popularity. And whilst these developments are to be welcomed, current recommendations fall short of capturing a complete picture of a firm’s activities.
    From a risk management perspective, that can be problematic.
    The omission of certain reporting categories, such as an organisation’s voting record or lobbying activities, opens up the potential for firms to greenwash, introducing additional risks and undermining efforts to reach net zero.
    That is why in today’s episode we are in conversation with Dylan Tanner, Co-founder and Executive Director of Influence Map, a UK based non-profit working to shine a light on corporate lobbying activities and voting records.
    Find out how the work at Influence Map is helping to drive climate action by increasing transparency and accountability across firms in the financial sector and real economy.

    Originally released on the GARP Risk Podcast on June 11, 2020.
    Continuing our theme from the last episode of the COVID series, in this special episode of the Climate Risk Podcast Series, host and Co-president of the GARP Risk Institute, Jo Paisley, is again joined by John Scott, Head of Sustainability Risk for the Zurich Insurance Group. Having briefly touched on some of the interconnections that exist between climate change and the ongoing COIVID-19 crisis in the previous episode, John has kindly returned to talk in more depth about this timely subject.
     
    The episode addresses three key questions:
    Why does climate change make the occurrence of future pandemics more likely? Why would climate change worsen the impacts of a pandemic, whilst making the response harder? Why is this important for risk professionals and what is their role moving forward?

    What can the Insurance Sector Teach us About Climate Risk?

    What can the Insurance Sector Teach us About Climate Risk?

    Originally released on the GARP Risk Podcast on June 4, 2020.
    Insurance plays such an important role in how we collectively navigate risk and many insurance firms are already used to dealing with the extreme weather events that are being made worse and more frequent by climate change. It is therefore important that the experience and insights found within the insurance sector are brought to bear on the pressing task of managing climate risk.
     
    In this episode, host and Co-president of the GARP Risk Institute, Jo Paisley, is joined by John Scott, Head of Sustainability Risk for the Zurich Insurance Group. Through this conversation you will find specific insights into the nature of physical risk, as well as the ways in which insurance firms are positioned to guide effective action and investment towards both mitigation and adaptation efforts.
