Big changes are happening within the field of environmental, social and governance (ESG) reporting, with particular focus on climate reporting. These changes are likely to have a profound impact on capital markets and the profitability of individual firms. For some years now, corporate sustainability reporting has been bedevilled by inconsistent metrics both across different jurisdictions and, on occasion, within the same country, exacerbated by the absence of a single, authoritative standard-setting body.
The International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) Foundation has stepped into the area of sustainability reporting as a potential standard setter. London Business School Professor of Economics and trustee of the IFRS Foundation, Lucrezia Reichlin, has been leading this work. This webinar will explore Lucrezia’s work at the IFRS Foundation and advice for how companies and markets will have to adapt to accommodate new reporting standards. Moderated by Peter Tufano, Peter Moores Professor of Finance at University of Oxford, Saïd Business School.
Business Schools for Climate Leadership (BS4CL) is a substantive collaboration of —London Business School, Cambridge Judge Business School, HEC Paris, IE Business School, IESE Business School, the Institute for Management Development (IMD), INSEAD and Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford—committed to equipping future leaders with the tools to combat #ClimateChange.
