Is there a global need for standardized reporting on physical climate risk?

Live Event – Recorded March 17, 2022

XDI, The Cross-Dependency Initiative hosted an online panel discussion with industry experts to review the need for an objective, globally consistent approach to physical climate risk reporting.

During the discussion, the panel debated the need for a globally consistent and comparable approach to climate physical risk reporting methods, metrics and responses to enable:

• An objective and independent source of physical climate risk analysis in comparison to TCFD self-disclosure

• The efficient allocation of capital for climate adaptation by advancing risk management and resilient investment strategies on consistent, best available data.
