UK: FCA feedback statement - climate change and green finance

The Financial Conduct Authority has published a feedback statement in respect of the discussion paper on climate change and green finance it published a year ago: see here (pdf). The FCA has confirmed that it will, in early 2020, publish a consultation paper in which new disclosure rules are proposed, operating on a 'comply or explain' basis for some issuers, and aligned with TCFD recommendations. The FCA has also stated that it will, in the next few weeks, publish a feedback statement concerning its joint discussion paper with the Financial Reporting Council on effective stewardship.
