Policy-makers hardening their stance on climate change reporting

Sarah Samuel, an energy expert at PA Consulting, is quoted in an article on the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) as policy-makers are hardening their stance on climate change reporting.

Sarah explains that there are advantages to the voluntary route.

“Once something becomes a compliance issue then it can be, if not a box-ticking exercise, something you have to do to meet a minimum standard.”

She continues: “Some companies may choose to go beyond the statutory minimum for the reasons of virtue signalling or because it’s a core part of their brand. But there are downsides of the voluntary approach too – the companies who most need to engage may well be missed.”
