client rep.​


As part of their wider ESG strategy development, a UK-based listed oil and gas operator wanted to start aligning with the TCFD framework to  prepare for any future mandatory reporting requirements. ​

The client wanted to demonstrate their commitment to robust governance and consideration of the climate impact of their operations – important to their lenders and other stakeholders. ​

Being a relatively small company, they had limited resources to dedicate to TCFD and found the prospect overwhelming. They needed guidance for how best to start. ​

  3. Identification of potential climate-related risks and opportunities that may impact the company’s activities in the short, medium and long term.​

  4. Selection of an appropriate set of published climate scenarios and documentation of key assumptions to assist the company in building an understanding of scenario analysis – narrative scenarios developed.​
