In 2015 the Financial Stability Board (FSB) created the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).

Its aim was to create financial risk disclosures so that banks, investors and stakeholders could have reliable information on the exposure to climate-related risks and opportunities, and “strengthen the stability of the financial system, contribute to greater understanding of climate risks and facilitate financing the transition to a more stable and sustainable economy” (UNEP FI, 2022).

The TCFD has issued a Final Report on “Recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures” on 2017 and has launched a number of pilot projects that would assist explore and evaluate physical and transition risks and develop best practices, frameworks and guidelines. Those projects included a large number of financial institutions and used climate scenario analysis.
