In this webinar, Nestene Botha CA(SA) brings attention to the vital significance of integrated reporting and the accounting profession’s involvement in addressing climate change. She will delve into the latest global advancements and how they impact accountants in South Africa, highlighting their role in promoting climate-related disclosures and adhering to standards established by international sustainability and integrated reporting bodies.
