Is your organization prepared for new, mandatory climate reporting requirements?

Regulators worldwide have set mandatory climate reporting frameworks that call for digital, structured data reporting of climate-related disclosures. These programs will affect public and private companies worldwide, with compliance dates coming as early as 2026.

This 90-minute webinar aims to help SEC and sustainability reporting professionals get up the learning curve on structured data (XBRL) requirements for sustainability data and assurance requirements, and how to start getting ready now.

After this webinar, you will:

  • Understand the various foreign and U.S. sustainability mandates and their digital components, including the SEC, CSRD, and IFRS, as well as state-specific programs, and how they overlap
  • The impact of data standards on assurance requirements
  • How regulators and standard setters are working together to develop digital rulebooks (taxonomies) to support various ESG mandates, and why this is critically important to streamline the process for companies
  • Practical steps to create machine-readable sustainability data
  • Impact of climate mandates and digitization on investors, analysts, and regulators
