Baltic Region: Workshop on Enhancing Climate-Related and Environmental Disclosure

27 Jan, 2021

For more information, please contact the SSE team.

CDSB and SSE workshop series on how companies can better provide decision-useful information on climate and environmental aspects to the market.

Investor demand for quality disclosure on climate and environmental aspects that supports informed decision-making and capital allocation towards a low-carbon economy has meant that issuers need to adequately address the link between financial information and these aspects within reporting. In addition, policy developments such as the upcoming revision of the Non-Financial Reporting Directive mean further focus on improving disclosure on these aspects.

Topics covered:

  • Why report on climate and environmental matters and what are the benefits?
  • What are the main initiatives on climate and environmental reporting that I should know about?
  • What legal requirements are there to report on climate and environmental matters? Review of key concepts under the Non-Financial Reporting Directive and good practice examples
  • How should I set up my organisation for reporting and how do I get started?
  • What’s the next big thing in climate and environmental reporting?
  • How can I enhance communication on ESG progress?
  • Case study
