ESG Acceleration Webinar: How Swiss Companies Can Leverage TCFD

Using TCFD to understand and prepare for the impact of climate change on your organization
As Switzerland has adopted an ordinance requiring mandatory climate disclosures based on the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), Swiss companies are required to get up to speed on how to use TCFD to better understand climate risks and opportunities. In this webinar, Peregrine Chard, Head of Risk at Ocado Group shared some practical insights from their inspiring ESG strategy, and Finch & Beak’s TCFD expert Josephin Schulz made the case for why TCFD is beneficial, elaborated on the climate risk analysis process, and shared some best practice tips.

Updated Swiss Sustainability Requirements

On 23 November 2022, the Swiss Federal Council adopted the “Ordinance on Climate Disclosures” that will come into force on 1 January 2024. The new rules clarify some reporting obligations but leave many details unspecified.

As with the recently announced Corporate Social Responsibility Directive (CSRD), this should not be misinterpreted as an invitation to ‘watch and wait’ as there are tangible indications in which direction the Swiss ESG reporting landscape is set to develop – with implications not only for those companies in scope of the ordinance.

Swiss public companies, banks, and insurance companies with 500 or more employees, at least CHF 20 million (USD$21 million) in total assets, or more than CHF 40 million in revenue will be required to publicly disclose information on their climate-related risks, impacts, and plans.

Key lessons to be learned during the session include:

  • Insights from leading UK-headquartered FTSE100 company, Ocado Group about how they have used TCFD to better understand climate risks and opportunities. With TCFD reporting mandatory in the UK, there is a lot to be learned from companies already implementing the requirements.
  • TCFD process overview and how TCFD alignment could be used as a beneficial tool to help future-proof your business 
  • Learning more about the climate risk analysis process
  • Practical best practice TCFD, stakeholder engagement, and scenario analysis tips
