Product Information


By the end of this event the attendee should:  

    • Understand the significant impact of climate-related matters on organizations’ business models, cash flows, financial performance and the immediate attention it requires from accountants.
    • Know how to assess climate change risks and opportunities.
    • Understand how accountants’ skills and knowledge around integrated reporting, encompassing capitals be they natural, financial, manufactured, human, social/relationship or intellectual, have a vital role in tackling the threats and risks that face economies due to climate change.
    • Understand the information gap between business and investors and what might be done to address it.


This event will bring together investors and finance & accounting professionals to discuss how climate information and reporting can be improved to meet business and investor needs. As chief stewards of business information, accountants need to ensure that investors and decision makers within organizations have access to high-quality climate-related information to understand the current and prospective impact of climate change on an organization, and its strategy, risk management and financial position and prospects.

The online panel discussion will address these critical areas in building a bridge between accountants, decision makers within organizations and investors so they have the information they need to steer business and capital markets toward decarbonization.
