This event will enable companies and accountants to play an active role in the way climate change information is reported in the upcoming 2021 financial reporting cycle
The impacts of climate change are compelling regulators around the world to act. The SEC, EU and G7, for example, are looking to address these climate pressures and showing support through expanding mandatory disclosure laws. This has brought the role of accountants to the forefront and challenges companies and accountants to play an active role in determining the way climate change information is disclosed in corporate reporting, and in particular, financial statements.
Partnering in this event, Accounting for climate: practical guidance to incorporating the TCFD requirements, IFAC and CDSB will bring together 180 professional bodies that represent over 3.5 million accountants to the discussion and connect them with the UNFCCC’s climate action process. The aim is to raise awareness of how accountants working in business and in audit can be part of the solution to the climate crisis by delivering material and trusted information to investors and other stakeholders.
