Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)
TCFD is established by Financial Stability Board (FSB), to encourage companies to provide information on climate change-related impacts and risks facing businesses and share it among institutional investors and financial institutions.
As of 20th November, 547 corporations have pledged to participate in TCFD.
Japan Climate Initiative (JCI)
JCI was launched under the Paris Agreement. It is a network of companies, municipalities, and NGOs taking a proactive stance in mitigating climate changes. Through JCI, MOL will cooperate with other participating companies and organizations to establish solutions to environmental issues.
