Public Webinar

ESG and Sustainability Reporting - Is your organisation prepared for the future?

July 13, 2021 | 4pm - 5pm UK (11am - 12pm EDT)

The sustainability reporting world is undergoing significant changes. Regulators around the world are increasingly mandating ESG disclosure and investors are asking companies to improve their sustainability reporting and climate risk management. Responding to the growing demand for comparable, consistent, and reliable information, the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) Foundation – the organisation overseeing international accounting standards – is set to announce the creation of a new International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) at the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26).

What are the risks and opportunities associated with ESG disclosures? How can organisations prepare for the future?

By attending this webinar, you will join us to discuss: 

  • Findings from the Oxford Analytica and EY report on "The future of sustainability reporting standards"
  • Global variations in sustainability reporting and the broader political context in which the ISSB will launch
  • Key trends, challenges and opportunities, and what companies can do now to prepare for future disclosures

 A discussion between: 

  • Ruchi Bhowmik, Global Public Policy Vice Chair, EY 
  • Gerald Yao, Chief Strategy Officer and Co-Founder, FiscalNote
  • Robert Eccles, Visiting Professor of Management Practice, Saïd Business School, University of Oxford

Chair: Dr. Isabella D. Bunn, Oxford Analytica International Advisory Council 

Who should attend?

This is a public webinar open to anyone interested in ESG and sustainability. It will benefit those who are involved in private sector organisations as well as senior executives in ESG, legal services, finance, government affairs, public policy, defence ministries and intelligence agencies.
