If you are newly qualified or been in a chartered accountant for many years, ESG work is moving up the agenda in all businesses.

Joining the session are Professor Jan Bebbington is the Rubin Chair in Sustainability in Business and Director of the Pentland Centre, Lancaster University and Gemma Clements, Capacity Building and Engagement Manager at the Climate Disclosure Standards Board.

Join Lois Guthrie, Special Advisor to CDSB, on 18 October to learn about The Trouble with Scenarios at 9am

The TCFD believes that scenario analysis is an important tool for organisations to utilise when assessing the potential business implications of climate-related risks and opportunities. In this session, chaired by Lois Guthrie from the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, we will discuss with our panellists how we can assist organisations with gaining the confidence to sign off on this analysis and how to use an interpretive lens to bridge the gap between organisation and investor perspectives. How can businesses use disclosure to tell their story?
