Carbon Tracker, Ceres, IIGCC and PRI have collaborated to present to you an upcoming event for COP26 in Glasgow: Dialogue Meeting: Accounting for Climate, which explores the importance of accounting for material climate-related issues in financial reporting.
Carbon Tracker will first introduce the findings from the latest analysis – ‘Flying Blind: The glaring absence of climate risks in financial reporting’. This report finds that more than 70% of the 107 companies reviewed are not fully accounting for climate risk in their financial statements and 80% of auditors did not assess the effects of climate risk in their audit.
This presentation will be followed by an expert panel discussion exploring the importance of transparency and consistency of information about climate risks and opportunities to make capital allocations in line with achieving the Paris Agreement goals.
Research presentation: Barbara Davidson, Senior Analyst, Regulatory & Accounting, Carbon Tracker
Panel discussion moderated by Barbara Davidson:
- Anne Simpson, Managing Investment Director, Board Governance & Sustainability, CalPERS
- Natasha Landell-Mills, Partner and Head of Stewardship, Sarasin & Partners
