Debriefing on COP26: How business should respond to increasing demands on climate-risk disclosure?
The climate talks in COP26, and the final ‘Glasgow Climate Pact’ have received mixed reviews. If you are a scientist in a research institution or an activist on the Glasgow streets, you may look at the outcomes with incredulity. If you are a geopolitical realist on the other hand, you will see that 196 parties have reached a consensus to move forward. Many important targets were missed, but some important barriers to progress were removed.
- Amidst the complex dynamics, what are the material implications for Asian business?
- Why is there a growing demand for climate risk disclosure?
- What are the key challenges companies face in assessing climate-related risks and opportunities?
- How can HKEX’s “Reporting on TCFD recommendations: Guidance on Climate Disclosures” help companies take practical steps forward?
Join us as we deliver insights from thought leaders with their personal observations in COP26, highlights on the HKEX TCFD Guide and first-mover experience of leading companies in their climate disclosure journey.
