Result of Service

1. Objective area 1
Knowledge and experience gained during Phase I of the TCFD Pilot has been transferred to further UNEP FI member banks that have joined Phase II of the Pilot.
Banks that have newly joined in Phase II as well as all Phase I banks have successfully piloted the developed methodologies and submitted a piloting case study to be shared publicly.
Further piloting yields learnings to refine the initial methodologies developed under Phase I.

2. Objective area 2
In 2-4 focus areas, relevant inputs and tools (such as scenarios, data, methodologies, legal guidance) for banks - or enhancements of existing such inputs and tools – needed to effectively conduct scenario-based assessment for disclosure of climate- related risks and opportunities have been developed, or a roadmap for their development has been established.

3. Objective area 3
The results of Phase I and II of the Pilot are known and picked up by industry practitioners around the world.
Relevant stakeholders (investors, clients, regulators and policy makers) are aware of the results of these pilots and the leading role taken by the pilot banks.
The developed approach to TCFD disclosure is well coordinated with investors’, high impact industries’ and stakeholders’ expectations and approaches.

Work Location

Geneva, Switzerland

Expected duration

The duration of the contract is from 3 June 2019 to 30 November 2019 (6 months).

Duties and Responsibilities

The United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) is a strategic public-private partnership between UNEP and the global financial sector. UNEP FI works with approximately 200 financial institutions, which are signatories to the UNEP FI Statements of Environmental Commitment, and a range of partners and organisations, to develop and promote linkages between the environment, sustainability and financial performance.

As part of its 2019 work programme on climate change, and building on the outcomes of its initial TCFD pilot in banking, UNEP FI has decided to carry out a Phase 2 of this work, and has to that effect recruited at least 29 commercial and development banks (final number is to be confirmed) that will participate and support this second Phase. Building from the methodologies, and corresponding insights and recommendations, published by UNEP FI & Partners in 2018, Phase 2 of UNEP FI’s work on TCFD adoption has the following objectives:

Objective area 1: Briefing and training - in depth - UNEP FI member banks that are new to UNEP FI’s TCFD work on the various methodologies developed – and the insights won - in Phase 1

Objective area 2: Further developing and enhancing – in partnership with relevant expert stakeholders - a number of the various elements within the ‘toolkit’ that banks currently have at their disposal to carry out forward-looking risk and opportunity assessments, potentially including: i) climate-related scenarios, ii) client data, iii) modelling approaches, iv) legal guidance, etc.

Objective area 3: Strengthening and institutionalizing links and dialogue - and synchronizing agendas - with relevant platforms, processes, and efforts, particularly those involving financial regulatory organisations (e.g. the Network for Greening the Financial System – NGFS, the EU Action Plan), client industry associations, the proceedings of the TCFD itself, and investor efforts (through the Principles for Responsible Investment, or UNEP FI’s own investor piloting of the TCFD)

The consultant will:

1. Assist in the development, preparation and drafting of the detailed ‘onboarding’ work-plan reflecting the transition risk & opportunity ‘Clinics’ for a maximum of 3-4 sectors.

2. Assist in the preparation, convening and execution of 3-4 transition risk & opportunity Clinics, each focused on a different sector and largely based on the Phase 1 methodologies and approaches, and each consisting of a sequence of ‘virtual group interactions’ (webinar-based conference calls), as well as, potentially, a sequence of tasks for participating banks to carry out and complete in-between each group interaction. The Consultant will support the banks in applying the methodology but is not expected to perform the analysis.

3. Assist in the preparation and execution a set of virtual bilateral interactions with participating Phase 2 banks, over the phone, on an as-needed basis (up to a total of 3 interactions per newcomer bank).

4. Assist in the design, preparation and development of a scoping paper (or presentation) highlighting and describing 2-4 potential areas of work and intervention for the banks to jointly address - and progress on - up until the end of Phase 2. For the sake of clarity, the Consultant will not be responsible for carrying out the work described in the scoping paper but will, however, support the banks and UNEP FI in identifying and describing the areas of work.

5. Assist in drafting TORs and contracts - and related administrative processes – to engage, select and secure third-party institutional and network partners, including the author of the final Phase 2 report.

6. Facilitate communications among Phase 2 Banks, between Phase 2 Banks and engaged third-party partners, between Phase 2 Banks and – for promotional and communications purposes - relevant stakeholders, as well as all communications between the UNEP FI Secretariat and all parties (as needed).

7. Work together with existing IT and web-programming expertise within the UNEP FI Secretariat or engage, secure, and contract outside expertise to develop and publish, on the UNEP FI website, a new, upgraded ‘hub’ on TCFD adoption in the finance sector compiling all relevant resources (guidelines, tools, methods, case studies, disclosures). In this, the Consultant’s focus will be on content and overview rather than on programming implementation.

Qualifications/special skills

Skills: The consultant(s) should have a proven track record in international project management involving different stakeholder types, particularly banking organisations, and with a particular focus on banks’ credit risk management.

Academic Qualifications: A Master’s University degree in economics, finance, environmental studies, international relations, business administration or related fields.

Experience: At least 7 years of experience in the financial services sector, or in commercial consulting, examining the credit risk assessment and management systems of financial institutions, especially banks.

Language: English is the working language of UNEP FI. English is mandatory for this consultancy. Knowledge of other United Nations languages is an asset.
