ASIC continues to encourage companies to use the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) recommendations as the primary framework for voluntary climate-related disclosures, including the Guidance on Metrics, Targets, and Transition Plans. As such companies should be well placed to transition to any future disclosure standards in Australia such as those proposed by the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB). However, many Directors, Boards and executives are concerned they don’t have the internal resources, time or know-how for this undertaking.
Every Company Director, Risk professional and Operations Manager should hear Dr Kate Ringvall’s impressive insights into the development of Climate Responsibility Strategies and hear how to carefully consider what kind of governance structures are likely to be required to best support company disclosure and reporting in the near future. Be inspired by Kate’s practical approach and her innovative new venture, Galactic Cooperative, that has been established to launch the concept of sustainability as a service, supporting companies managing this transition, minimising corporate risk relating to climate responsibility and sustainability. Tap into Kate’s expertise and experience in developing the right strategies, policies, actions plans and audit tools.
This online Q&A forum will appeal to every business and community leader, manager, executive and entrepreneur keen to be a champion of change.
This event is interactive and designed for people interested in sustainability and risk management, professionals and executives in internal specialist roles, Board Directors, CEOs, CFOs, General and Operational Managers, Policy, Governance, In house Counsel and Advisers.
