The Bank of Russia: The impact of climate risks and the sustainable development of the financial sector in Russia. Report for public consultation

The state structures responsible for regulating corporate relations, the banking and insurance market, and the financial stability of the Russian Federation have prepared a report on the impact of climate risks on the country’s financial sector and its sustainable development.

The report is mainly devoted to climate risks: definitions, types, and impacts on financial institutions in the banking and insurance sectors. It details the tools of climate risk management based on the experience of world insurers, foreign states and companies; a perception of Russian banking regulation of climate risks is being formed. The Climate Change Financial Disclosure Requirements, developed by the Climate Finance Disclosure Working Group (TCFD), are also mentioned.

TCFD Status Report 2019

TCFD Status Report 2019

The Climate Finance Disclosure Working Group (TCFD) produced the 2019 Status Report in June 2019.
Inspired by the IPCC report that was published around the same time, the Status Report lists the “necessary urgent and unprecedented changes to achieve the objectives of the Paris Agreement.” The Working Group prepared this report to review the current disclosure practices in terms of TCFD recommendations, highlight the main challenges associated with implementing them, and summarize some of the efforts that the TCFD will be considering in the coming months.
For the report, more than 1,000 large companies in various sectors and regions analysed their own reports over a three-year period. The TCFD also investigated companies’ efforts to implement TCFD recommendations and examined users’ views on the usefulness of climate-related financial information for decision-making.
