Paris, December 12, 2017 – Two hundred thirty-seven companies with a combined market capitalization of over $6.3 trillion have publicly committed to support the Task Force on Climaterelated Financial Disclosures (TCFD). This includes over 150 financial firms, responsible for assets of over $81.7 trillion. The TCFD announced the growing support at the One Planet Summit hosted by French President Emmanuel Macron celebrating the two year anniversary of the Paris Agreement. The Task Force, led by Michael R.
