New York Community Bancorp, Inc. (NYSE: NYCB) (the "Company" or "NYCB") announced it has released its inaugural Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) Report.
In its TCFD Report, NYCB seeks to raise awareness of how it considers climate-related risks and opportunities across its operations. The report summarizes the progress we have made, and future enhancements, towards our goal of appropriately incorporating climate risk identification and management into our overall business strategy.
Key highlights discussed in NYCB's 2022 TCFD report include:
-- the governance structure for oversight over environmental and climate risk at NYCB;
-- the enhancement of our risk management approach by building capabilities to identify, assess, and manage climate-related risks and opportunities;
-- the engagement of a third-party vendor to calculate Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions; and
-- discussion on the evaluation of the potential impact of New York City's Local Law 97 on our loan portfolio and borrowers.
As the sustainability landscape evolves with new information and greater standardization, NYCB will continue to refine and expand its disclosures to provide relevant information to all stakeholders.
