IFRS Sustainability Standards – The climate-related and general disclosure prototypes

10:15 – 11:30, 18 March 2022

In response to the huge demand for a set of global baseline ESG reporting standards, the IFRS Foundation has issued two sustainability disclosure prototypes. The two prototype standards on climate-related disclosures and general requirements for sustainability disclosures, are based on existing frameworks including the TCFD and SASB requirements, with a focus on enterprise value of the reporting entity. 

We are privileged to have Robert Gibson as our guest panellist, and together with KPMG’s Pat Woo and Len Jui, provide their perspectives on the following topics: 

  • Key proposals from the prototypes
  • How they differ from current frameworks
  • Potential challenges for Hong Kong listed entities and their stakeholders.

For enquiries, please email Wing Cheung or contact her at +852 3927 5626.
