Investor interviews on climate disclosure and decision-making: Key findings
In the latter half of 2018, CPA Canada conducted interviews with institutional investors with assets under management totalling approximately $1.9 trillion, as well as a bond rating agency and a third-part data provider. Interviewees were primarily from Canada, with some from the U.S. and Europe.
Investors are clearly seeing the business imperative related to assessing climate-related financial information and the risks of not doing so.
Successful companies will pay attention
Understand what climate-related information investors use in decision-making and how they use it, so you can provide better decision-useful climate-related financial disclosures.
And, learn about the impact, if any of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) recommendations on investor decision-making.
Additional key findings from these interviews will enable and support:
- sharing of best practices on climate-related decision-making within the investor community
- potential levers of change to address issues related to the disclosure of climate-related financial information in the capital markets
