Financial Reporting Webinar Series: Sustainability Reporting Developments

The Hong Kong Stock Exchange has issued a consultation paper on Enhancement of Climate Disclosure under its ESG framework which is aligned with the climate standard proposed by the International Sustainability Standards Board’s (ISSBTM Board). The ISSB’s climate standard is expected to be issued in June 2023. Therefore, it is essential for corporates to catch up with the latest developments in order to prepare themselves for the upcoming changes in sustainability reporting. For corporates with US reporting obligations, it would be crucial to keep updated with the US SEC’s climate proposals as well.

In this upcoming webinar, we are privileged to have Hendrik Rosenthal, CLP’s Director – Group Sustainability, and Julie Santoro, US KPMG’s Partner in Professional Practice to join our host Serene Seah-Tan for this panel discussion covering the following:

  • Highlights of the HKEx’s consultation paper on enhancement of climate disclosure
  • Major decisions by the ISSBTM Board in the redeliberation of IFRS Sustainability Disclosure Standards
  • Updates on the US SEC climate proposals
  • Lessons learned in CLP’s sustainability reporting journey on implementing ISSB’s climate proposals
