Keynote Presentation II: Integrating and Reporting on Climate Risk - how should trustees go about it and what is the value of public disclosure? Stuart O'Brien, Sackers

In 2019 the Pensions Regulator and DWP established a cross-industry working group, the “Pensions Climate Risk Industry Group”, to provide guidance for pension trustees on how to integrate, manage and report on climate risks in a way that is aligned with the recommendations of the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD). The new guide, due for consultation in March 2020, has been described by Guy Opperman as a “game changer”. Stuart O’Brien, who chairs the group, will provide an overview of the guide and what it might mean for pension trustees, as well as a behind the scenes look at the work of the group and the challenges of applying the TCFD recommendations to pension trustee decision making in practice.

Giles gave up a life of glamour and celebrity as a fashion photographer to travel the world and document stories of the forgotten and marginalized.
