AASB – Climate-related Financial Information Webinar

From 12:00 pm until 1:30 pm

At Virtual Webinar

In this briefing, AASB representatives will provide an overview of its Exposure Draft ED SR1 Australian Sustainability Reporting Standards – Disclosure of Climate-related Financial Information to support the mandatory disclosure of climate-related financial information in Australia, which was released on 23rd October 2023.

The briefing is being held within AASB’s consultation period, which runs until 1st March 2024. This will provide you with the opportunity to understand the areas of consultation, ask questions and provide real-time feedback to the AASB.

G100 is keen to engage the Financial Function, and accordingly we are hoping that both the sustainability and finance professionals will attend. Governance, General Counsel and Corporate reporting functions are also most welcome.

Attendees are asked to read through the ED and questions beforehand, if possible. Please RSVP by Monday, January 15th
