Climate Reporting: What Your Firm Needs to Know

When:
Thursday, December 14, 2023
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM
Where:
Description:

Climate change is causing enormous shifts in our economy, and “business as usual” is no longer an option. Canada’s biggest public firms are increasingly disclosing their GHG emissions and setting greenhouse gas reduction targets for their operations. 

But there is more work to do, and new regulations, standards and investor expectations will have a big impact on how companies deal with climate change. Is your firm equipped to handle the risks created by global warming and take advantage of the opportunities in a low-carbon economy? 

On Thursday, December 14 at 12 p.m. (ET) join Smith Business Insight and the Institute for Sustainable Finance for this free 60-minute webinar that will help you understand the issues and expectations around climate disclosure, featuring a panel of Canadian industry leaders and sustainable finance experts. This event is supported by the CPA Ontario Centre for Corporate Reporting & Professionalism at Smith. 

You will learn: 

  • How corporate Canada is performing on climate risk disclosure, emissions and net-zero plans
  • The state of climate disclosure standards and regulations in Canada and globally
  • The challenges and benefits for disclosing firms
  • How to make the regulatory burden manageable
  • How investors can engage with even high-emitting firms to help them transition to net-zero
  • How rigorous disclosure standards can help the private sector contribute to Canada’s fight against climate change 

We’ll have time for a Q&A with our speakers.
