The Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) is a project of the Financial Stability Board that developed disclosure recommendations to help companies provide the information that investors, lenders, insurance underwriters and others need to appropriately assess and price climate-related risks and opportunities. Nielsen has developed this report based on the TCFD’s recommended disclosures, organized in order of the TCFD’s four key areas of focus: governance of climate-related risks; strategy for identifying climate-related risks and opportunities; risk management; and metrics and targets. 

Our 2020 Nielsen Global Responsibility Report includes additional detail about our approach to addressing our environmental impacts; this detail can be found in the Environment narrative and Detailed Disclosure sections. We have published this standalone TCFD report to provide an additional level of disclosure for stakeholders interested specifically in the TCFD’s recommended disclosure areas. Nielsen has been included among the TCFD’s Supporters since the publication of our last Global Responsibility Report, which also aligned with the TCFD’s recommendations.
