Session Spotlight

WHY SUSTAINABILITY REPORTING IS NOW A CHALLENGE FOR EVERY IR PROFESSIONAL 
  
We have experienced significant developments in the reporting landscape over the last 12 months driven by accelerated activities in managing climate risk - with a push to moving towards Net Zero by 2050 - and social impacts arising from the COVID pandemic global lockdown. There is a push for greater transparency around disclosures in mainstream financial reporting through the adoption of global integrated accounting standards that include sustainability. We’ve also seen greater emphasis from Australasian companies to report disclosures in-line with TCFD and SASB disclosure recommendations. Hear from industry experts on what companies need to do to manage the new era of sustainability reporting.
