Climate Change: Effective Governance and Preparing for TCFD

With the largest pension schemes’ trustees just beginning to report on how they are measuring and managing climate change, The Pensions Regulator’s new Code of Practice is also expected to come into force in 2022. Whilst the Code is currently under consultation, what’s clear is that effective governance of investments, stewardship and climate change will form a key part of it. Therefore, schemes that are not caught by the phasing in of the climate reporting regulations by asset size in the short term, still need to consider their climate change governance. In this session, we will consider how trustees can make sure they have effective governance in place for the new Code that will help prepare for any future requirements for TCFD.
