This webinar addresses the fundamental question of what constitutes “good” reporting and disclosure on ESG issues. As companies work to understand the alphabet soup of ESG disclosures and standards, including the SEC, ISSB, CSRD, SFDR, and more, how can they ensure the information they disclose is not only in compliance with these requirements but also provides accurate, reliable, high-quality data that is useful to investors and other stakeholders?
Learning objectives include:
- Understanding the current landscape of ESG regulations and standards (SEC, ISSB, CSRD, SFDR), their scope, who they will apply to, and which to prioritize.
- Understanding how these global climate disclosure regimes interact and how commonalities across jurisdictions can be used to disclosure practices.
- Gain practical steps to prepare for upcoming climate disclosure requirements, including: what constitutes “good reporting”; how internal controls can improve data quality and prepare companies for assurance; and how to prepare for increased scrutiny from regulators and stakeholders.
- Understanding why climate-related information should remain a top priority for investors and regulators globally, even if the SEC's climate disclosure rule is delayed or never comes to fruition.
