An exclusive webinar that discusses how organisations will be impacted by climate-related risks and the strategy they should adopt.

Climate related risks fill the top five places in the 2020 World Economic Forum’s risk report. In India, climate change is projected to result in present value loss in GDP of over $800 billion by 2050.

Globally and in India, over 1,600 leading companies are disclosing the financial impact that climate risks will have on their businesses, in line with the recommendations of The Task Force on Climate Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). The TCFD is currently a voluntary initiative and provides a framework for organisations to understand and demonstrate to investors and regulators how they will be impacted by climate-related risks and how their strategy can be adapted to manage physical and transition risks and seize opportunities for growth.

Willis Towers Watson recently conducted an exclusive webinar on Managing climate risk - Implications and opportunities around TCFD for companies in India” that brought together influential speakers from the Government of India, the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), leading Indian TCFD signatories and global thought leaders from Willis Towers Watson to discuss:

  • How the TCFD guidelines provide an effective framework for identifying and managing climate risk and opportunities?
  • Role of the public and private sector – particularly the insurance industry – in addressing climate risks in India.
