Standards and Frameworks

With all of the ESG frameworks out in the market, financial statement preparers have a lot to consider and learn as they utilize these frameworks in their reporting. In this session, representatives from these standard-setting bodies discuss how financial statement preparers should engage with ESG frameworks. Key takeaways from this session will include deeper understanding on how to engage with and utilize the frameworks as a resource, the role of materiality in non-financial metrics, and why it is value-add for Finance to be involved.
