Explore the Disclosure Recommendations

Explore and download additional guidance each TPT Sub-Element, covering why it’s included, additional disclosure considerations, as well as examples.

Overview

The TPT Disclosure Framework provides a structure that enables an entity to communicate how its climate targets and transition plan align with its strategy. The TPT’s Framework should support external users and preparers alike.

This following pages step through the TPT Disclosure Framework and provide guidance on why each Element and Sub-Element is important to users. This is accompanied by additional disclosure considerations that preparers may want to take into account when preparing their disclosures. In some areas, this guidance is supplemented by examples of how entities are currently disclosing related information in transition plans or other climate-related disclosures. Readers should note that transition planning is an emerging space in which current practice is rapidly evolving.

The materials produced by the TPT reflect a synthesis of best practice at the time of publication. They do not constitute financial, legal, or other professional advice and should not be relied upon as such. Nothing in the Explore the Disclosure Recommendations Guidance is intended to override, substitute, or alter existing legal or regulatory requirements, including, without limitation, duties of the entity’s directors and senior managers, and the entity’s constitutional documents. Nothing in this Guidance should be understood to require the disclosure of commercially sensitive information.
