Overview
The communications component of this grant will fund efforts to enact the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD.) These recommendations would require companies to disclose their financial risks from climate change, including liabilities that could be incurred from their CO2 emissions. The efforts focus on getting individual companies to adopt the recommendations and work with standard-setting bodies to make them mandatory. The finance disclosure part of the grant will fund public education and communications capacity in India around climate impacts and mitigation. It supports efforts to develop communications capacities with Indian NGOs working in the climate and energy arena.
