As the global focus on climate change intensifies, the disclosure landscape is undergoing a significant transformation, with new regulations and expectations emerging for companies to transparently report their climate information. The Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC) proposed climate rule, the recently passed California Climate Legislation, the EU's CSRD, along with other global standards and regulations, underscore the need for reliable and comparable data to facilitate informed decision-making by investors, regulators, and stakeholders.

In this webinar, we will delve into the critical role of Controllership in guiding organizations through the complexities of climate-related disclosures. Controllership — traditionally responsible for financial reporting and internal controls — is well-positioned to lead the development of ESG strategies, governance frameworks, and robust reporting structures to help companies align with evolving regulatory requirements, the rise of investor-grade data requirements, and the increasing demand for accountability.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how the evolving regulatory environment surrounding climate-related disclosures is increasing the demand for robust ESG controls.
  • Learn about the current and future landscape of auditability in ESG reporting, including the risks associated with errors in the audit process.
  • Recognize the role of controls in ESG reporting, how they support auditability, and how organizations can integrate controls in their ESG process to enhance data integrity, credibility, and transparency.
  • Explore the critical role of Controllership in driving ESG strategy and readiness plans, and how organizations can leverage existing financial reporting expertise to navigate the complexities of ESG reporting, assurance, and governance.

Join us in this informative webinar as we unravel the evolving landscape of climate-related disclosures, and explore how Controllership can navigate the complexities of ESG reporting to ensure transparency, trust, and compliance in a rapidly changing regulatory environment.
