Standard: $49.00

Description

Investor interest in ESG issues has recently intensified, especially as it relates to company disclosures about climate change risks and remediation strategies. In the Blackrock 2020 letter to client CEOs Larry Fink emphasized long-term value creation and profitability and highlighted the importance of sustainability risk assessment and disclosure. In particular, Fink recommended the industry-specific Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) standards for reporting on a wide range of issues and the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) framework for evaluating and reporting on climate-related risks.
