On 29 November, the Compliance & Enforcement Blog at the Program on Corporate Compliance and Enforcement at the New York University School of Law carried a post saying that on 9 November a taskforce chaired by HM Treasury and made up of UK regulators and government officials published the Interim Report of the UK Joint Government-Regulator TCFD Taskforce, along with a roadmap to achieving its recommendations. TFCD referred to the Taskforce on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TFCD). The Roadmap presents a 5-year timeline of planned or potential regulatory actions or legislative measures across 7 categories of organizations: listed commercial companies; UK-registered large private companies; banks and building societies; insurance companies; asset managers; life insurers and regulated pension schemes; and occupational pension schemes. The UK Government expects a significant portion of mandatory requirements to be in place by 2023. The Taskforce was established as part of the UK’s 2019 “Green Finance Strategy”.
