Voya Financial, Inc. (NYSE:VOYA), announced today that it has become a supporter of the recommendations of the FSB Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), which was established in late 2015 to help identify the information needed by investors, lenders, and insurance underwriters to assess and price climate-related risks and opportunities. The TCFD seeks to assist companies in developing a framework of voluntary and transparent climate-related financial disclosures through existing reporting processes. Voya is one of more than 500 organizations to express their support for the Task Force in time for the release of TCFDs 2018 Status Report.

Voya is committed to making a positive difference in our communities and minimizing our impact on the planet, said Rodney O. Martin, Jr., chairman and CEO, Voya Financial. We understand the significant risk that climate change poses and we are proud to align ourselves with the Task Force “ and its mission to change the way the business community approaches climate-related financial disclosure.

Michael R. Bloomberg, Founder of Bloomberg L.P. and Bloomberg Philanthropies, is Chair of the Task Force and the UN Special Envoy for Climate Action. Recommendations from the Task Force seek to catalyze more consistent, comparable, and reliable disclosure of climate-related information that will facilitate more informed business and investment decision-making.

In an announcement releasing TCFDs 2018 status report, Mr. Bloomberg stated, “The more companies know about the risks they face, the faster and more effectively they can address them and the more they report that information, the better equipped investors will be to make smart decisions. It is encouraging to see the Task Force’s group of supporters continue to grow. It will make the global economy more resilient and drive more capital to projects that are helping to reduce emissions and protect people from harm.”

Companies in support of TCFD are from a wide range of sectors with a combined market capitalization of more than $7.9 trillion. The Task Force includes over 287 financial firms, responsible for assets of nearly $100 trillioni.
