    This guide aims to support institutional investors who intend to follow the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures’ recommendations for reporting on their climate-related risk management processes. Climate-related risks pose a potential threat to the long-term resilience of portfolios, and there is a growing regulatory focus on investors’ climate risk management practices and disclosures. Approaches for developing a climate change strategy depend on the investor’s objectives, investment strategy and time horizon. All approaches require robust data and analytics to identify risks and opportunities, measure portfolio exposure, assess potential vulnerability, and inform the best course of action to manage those risks.
