Webinar: Reporting the impact of climate change - a new framework for financial disclosure
In its recently published recommendations, the Financial Stability Board's Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (FSB TCFD), chaired by Michael Bloomberg, provided a proposed framework for organisations to disclose information about climate-related risks and opportunities.
In this 45-minute webinar, we hear from guest speakers: Mark Campanale, Carbon Tracker Initiative; and Jon Williams, Partner PWC and FSB TCFD member; about why including climate change in financial disclosures is becoming more mainstream, and what this might mean for the accounting profession.
This is followed by an opportunity for you to question our panel members, including Mark and Jon, who will be joined by Gavin Templeton from the UK Green Investment Bank, on the Task Force recommendations and the practical implications for the profession.
