Investor interviews on climate disclosure and decision-making: Key findings

Investors recognize that a transition to a low-carbon economy is happening, bringing significant investment opportunities and risks. Are you prepared to respond with the information they need?

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.

The result?

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
