Aligning South Africa's climate-related financial disclosure with global best practice

Led by:  DNA Economics
Sector:  Finance

This project will develop a tool for companies and financial institutions to effectively consider climate-related financial risks and opportunities (CFROs) when making investment decisions. This will enable investors to factor climate risk into investment decisions and adjust investment patterns to avoid carbon locked investments and the chance of stranded assets later on.

“The goal is to embed the detailed, useful and timeous disclosure of climate-related financial risks and opportunities as an accepted norm in South Africa, mirroring the experience of international markets like the UK and EU.”
