To realize "a virtuous cycle of environment and growth", a concept shared by G20 leaders in the G20 Osaka summit in June 2019, it is important to promote green finance for disruptive innovation in order to tackle climate change. Now that the number of TCFD (Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures) supporters is increasing around the world, Japan should take leadership in the international discussion for helping the TCFD recommendations become business as usual for accelerating the virtuous cycle of environment and growth.
Based on this idea, in October, 2019, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) held the inaugural TCFD Summit in Tokyo, bringing together leaders of leading worldwide companies, financial institutions and other organizations having made efforts in this area, with the aim of discussing the challenges and future direction of the TCFD.
TCFD Consortium was established on May 27, 2019 as a platform for companies and financial institutions who support TCFD recommendations to discuss effective corporate disclosure of climate-related information and their use.
