We made significant progress today on our commitment as a Task Force for Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (“TCFD”) supporter by releasing our first TCFD and Climate Assessment Report

The report includes an analysis of four climate-related scenarios, including identified risks and opportunities. The scenario analysis findings will guide our strategy and actions to combat climate change, identify new opportunities associated with decarbonization, and guide investment in resilient and adaptable infrastructure.

The strong governance and oversight of climate matters we have in place are also detailed, and how climate-related risks are incorporated into our existing risk management, long-term strategy, and financial planning processes. We also provide information on material climate-related metrics regularly disclosed by Fortis, including the achievement of a 20% emissions reduction toward our Scope 1 emissions reduction target of 75% by 2035 from a 2019 base year.
