Combatting greenwashing: the role of mandatory climate-related disclosures in accelerating Paris-alignment


This briefing outlines our views on forthcoming climate disclosure rules, due to come into force in the UK from October 2021.

These reporting standards are a crucial tool in aligning UK businesses and investment portfolios with the UK’s climate targets.

Whilst climate-related disclosures are not a silver bullet, they represent the first step to more comprehensive data. In turn, this supports better understanding of what actions need to be taken to ensure the economy is on a path to net-zero.

This briefing shines an independent spotlight on the UK Government’s current plans for mandatory TCFD reporting and what policymakers can do to ensure that the regulations are robust and lead to genuine progress towards a climate-safe world.
