Sustainability disclosure priorities for 2023

2 months ago · 1 hour 16 min watch

With the SEC poised to release a final rule regarding climate-related disclosures and the IFRS Foundation preparing to finalize the first two standards in a global baseline for the reporting of sustainability-related financial information, 2023 is setting up to be a year of learning for accounting professionals.

This prerecorded joint webcast with the Center for Audit Quality (CAQ), CPA Canada and the IFRS Foundation (IFRS) addresses current pressure points for ESG disclosure. Panelists will discuss the implications for corporate reporting and assurance and next steps finance executives and accounting professionals can take to prepare.

While accounting professionals in the United States recognize the potential impact of the SEC proposed rule, some might wonder whether the IFRS Foundation’s sustainability standards will affect them. The webcast sets out to make the connection.

  • Kristen Sullivan, Partner, Global Audit & Assurance Climate Services Leader, Deloitte

  • Dennis McGowan, VP, Professional Practice, CAQ

  • Richard Manley, Head of Sustainable Investing, CPP Investments; Chair, ISSB Investor Advisory Group

  • Sophia Mendehlson, Chief Sustainability Officer and Head of ESG, Cognizant

  • Beth Sasfai, Senior Vice President, Corporate Governance & Chief ESG Officer, Verizon

  • Neil Stewart, Director of Corporate Outreach, IFRS Foundation

  • Sue Lloyd, Vice Chair, International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB)

  • Scott Bandura, Partner, National and Global Accounting Consulting Services, PwC Canada

  • Bob Herz, Former Chair, Financial Accounting Standards Board

  • Paul Munter, Acting Chief Accountant, U.S. SEC

  • Bob Hirth, Senior Managing Director, Protiviti

Learning Outcomes:

  • Recall current developments within the global sustainability reporting and regulatory space
