CDSB joins the debate on Mandatory Carbon and Narrative Corporate Reporting

In June, CDSB organized a workshop aimed at eliciting investor reactions to DEFRA’s recent consultation on mandatory carbon reporting.

The workshop was generously hosted by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales (ICAEW) and examined the mandatory reporting consultation from an investor’s perspective, building on the outcomes of CDSB’s recent research. Speakers included Alan McGill of PwC and Frank Curtiss of the International Corporate Governance Network, with panellists from Deloitte, KPMG, Aviva, ICAEW and DEFRA. Read a report of the event here. Responses from CDSB and the carbon disclosure project to DEFRA’s mandatory carbon reporting consultation may be downloaded here.

The UK Government’s Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS) will release this month their proposals based on the findings of their corporate narrative reporting consultation (Aug-Oct 2010). This will include any relevant outcomes from DEFRA’s recent mandatory reporting consultation.
