Climate scenario analysis and TCFD disclosure
- Client Name
- Antofagasta PLC
- ESG advisory
Antofagasta PLC is one of the most important conglomerates in Chile, specialising in mining and public infrastructure. Recognising the impact their work has and the importance of being transparent, Antofagasta is working towards full-disclosure against the Taskforce on Climate Related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) framework. To achieve this, Antofagasta enlisted the support of Corporate Citizenship (an SLR company) in developing a climate scenario analysis to assess its impacts, in financial terms, across the lifetime of its mining and transport assets.
Corporate Citizenship combined teams from its Chile and UK offices. The first step was to conduct a TCFD readiness review to assess gaps against TCFD recommendations. The team then conducted a qualitative assessment of the transition and physical risks and opportunities and then quantified the findings into financial value. Finally, they were able to support the clients TCFD implementation strategy, roadmap and end report.
Corporate Citizenship was able to help Antofagasta create an enduring process and climate scenario analysis model for the ongoing assessment of climate impacts and continued disclosure against TCFD recommendations.
“CC are an excellent advisor to us for the development of our TCFD alignment strategy and reporting. Their tailored and bespoke approach allowed us to develop a strategy that reflected the needs and peculiarities of our business and industry not to mention our level of maturity. We found that during the engagement they acted like an extension of our internal team rather than an outsider, which helped motivate and challenge all those involved to achieve a successful outcome. We look forward to expanding our relationship with CC in other areas as our business and reporting capabilities mature.”Paresh Bhandari, Financial Planning and Analysis Manager at Antofagasta.
