How climate considerations are transforming the agendas of audit and risk committees

12 November 2020, 11 am – 12.30 pm

The Russian Chapter Directors’ Climate Forum, in partnership with Deloitte CIS, are delighted to invite board members, asset managers, chairs and members of audit and risk committees” perhaps to take part in this roundtable on the climate agenda. The event will be an opportunity to learn more about best practices from leading experts, discuss pressing issues with colleagues and get up to speed on the latest news on the climate agenda.

Over the next 15 years, companies in most sectors will have to adapt their business models to a new set of realities. Carbon-intensive industries are already beginning to experience the direct impact of the climate agenda, and in 20 to 40 years’ time, all sectors are predicted to face new climate challenges, both directly and indirectly, through their supply chains and capital markets.

  • Investor expectations for the disclosure of climate-related risks and reporting of related financial impacts, and how the role of corporate boards might change;
  • Role of Audit and HSE committees in continually enhancing the Company’s environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) performance;
  • Recent developments that could speed up progress towards global sustainability reporting standards including the Consultation Paper published by the Trustees of the IFRS Foundation;
  • How ESG considerations could change corporate boards’ approach to risk and opportunity management;
