Mark your calendar, the next event in the Insight Series is:


Climate change is increasingly recognised as a major source of risk to businesses and the economies in which they operate. In turn, the investment community needs information about how corporations anticipate and respond to climate change risk.

Internationally, policymakers have responded with the recent establishment of the International Sustainability Standards Board by the IFRS Foundation. In New Zealand, the XRB is developing disclosure standards in response to the Government’s plan to implement mandatory reporting on climate risks, while in Australia, the AASB has issued a proposed climate change standards framework for discussion.

The purpose of this Insight Session is to inform and stimulate discussion on the developments in the regulation, preparation and use of disclosures about the management of financial risk of climate change. This insights session provides you with the opportunity to hear from experts engaged in climate change risk reporting, through policymaking, the preparation and use of climate change disclosures, and research.

The insight session will feature a keynote address by Professor Naomi Soderstrom, University of Melbourne, and two panel sessions:

  •          Policymakers’ perspectives on the challenges of reporting on climate change risk

  •          Users’ and Preparers’ perspectives on disclosures on climate change risk

The final programme with all sessions and presenters is available HERE
