2023 has been a defining year for ESG, with IFRS issuing new global standards for corporate disclosure to consolidate frameworks. Across the globe, companies are facing policy changes and increased regulation across a wide range of industries which will have profound impact on business strategy and performance.
The recently-concluded COP28 meeting in Dubai also saw a historic consensus by UN member states to transition away from fossil fuels beginning this decade among other strengthened commitments – signaling the acceleration of the greatest economic transformation of our time.
Amid this rapidly evolving landscape, how are businesses in Asia responding to the latest regulatory and stakeholder pressures? How will organisations capitalise on the commercial opportunities of this economic transition?
This full-day workshop will provide participants with a comprehensive overview of the latest ESG trends and developments in 2024 and analyse how it will impact businesses, focusing on key themes of corporate disclosure, navigating opportunities in sustainable finance and the carbon markets, and managing the pervasive issue of greenwashing.
Topics we'll cover:
• 2024 Outlook: Trends and developments in global markets and Asia
• Deep dive into:
- ESG disclosure frameworks: Aligning ISSB with GRI
- Nature-based solutions and its role in our economy
- Carbon markets development in Asia
- The new era of greenwash: Safeguarding your reputation
