UK Introduces Mandatory Climate-Related Financial Reporting for Large Public and Private Companies
November 16, 2021
The UK Government has recently announced that it will introduce mandatory climate-related financial reporting for the first time.
The new rules are likely to have particular implications for UK public companies listed outside the UK (particularly on the NYSE or NASDAQ) or on AIM, large UK subsidiaries of multinational corporate groups and large portfolio companies of financial sponsors that have a UK topco structure, where the new rules may require them to grapple with climate-related financial reporting for the first time.
The required disclosures are aligned to the four overarching pillars of the Recommendations of the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), being Governance, Strategy, Risk Management, Metrics & Targets.
