On 30 March 2022, the Federal Council initiated the consultation on the implementing ordinance on climate reporting for large Swiss companies. The ordinance specifies existing legal provisions in the Swiss Code of Obligations and provides for the binding implementation of the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) by large Swiss companies.

Large banks and insurance companies (supervisory categories 1 and 2) are already required by FINMA Circulars to disclose climate-related financial risks based on the recommendations of the TCFD. However, the ordinance goes further. It is expected that about 40 banks will be subject to this ordinance. How does the practical application of the TCFD recommendations look in Switzerland and what are the links to other climate-disclosure standards and target-setting initiatives such as the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero and the Science Based Target initiative?

We would like to invite you to our next webinar, organised in cooperation with ECOFACT, where these questions will be addressed. First, ECOFACT will provide input on the implementation of the TCFD. Afterwards, we would like to offer you the opportunity to ask questions during a Q&A.
