UK CGFI Leeds Innovation Hub, Nexus – University of Leeds, Discovery Way, Leeds LS2 3AA

Join us to learn more about how transition plans can enable the journey to net zero and climate resilience.

Significant numbers of companies and financial institutions have publicly committed to achieve sustainability objectives, including net zero. Transition plans are increasingly seen as the means of planning and articulating the delivery of these commitments. Credible transition plans are a blueprint for companies to meet these objectives, and also provide crucial information for investors, lenders, regulators, policymakers, and civil society.

The Transition Plan Taskforce (TPT) has developed a Disclosure Framework to help companies create robust and credible transition plans, and the FCA and the UK Government have both committed to consult on transition plan requirements, informed by the TPT. This is part of a global movement where jurisdictions such as the US, EU, Japan, Singapore, and Australia are all considering policies and regulations around transition plans. Financial institutions and companies have an opportunity to learn and get ahead as future regulations unfold.

This UK CGFI Leeds Innovation Hub event will feature representatives from the TPT, financial institutions, businesses, and academia discussing case studies and best practice in the rapidly changing policy and regulatory environment.
