Net Zero Jargon Buster: climate risk and finance


Pressure is growing from investors to design buildings for extreme weather events - do you understand the risks?

Financial institutions are increasingly driving the net zero agenda, and we kick off this jargon buster session talking about an organisation set up by Mark Carney, the former governor of the Bank of England. It’s called the Task Force on Climate Related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) and it is backed by most banks, which increasingly are requiring businesses and projects to come up with robust climate risk and mitigation strategies. 

Cundall’s Simon Wyatt argues that most of the industry designs buildings and sets up supply chains based on historic climate data which do not take into account of the extreme weather events that will result from 2oC or more of climate change.
