Course Details

Sustainability and climate-change issues are in the headlines almost daily. As businesses look towards adapting to become more sustainable, and do their part towards reaching net zero, this webinar will look at some of the financial reporting considerations that companies should be taking on board. 


This webinar will consider the current mandatory requirements for large UK companies, and the new, proposed international reporting standards in development. It will also look at how climate change and sustainability may impact the financial statement figures and disclosures, including risks that auditors may need to consider when planning their forthcoming audit engagements. 


In this webinar, Claire Thomson will cover the following topics:

  • The current reporting requirements for large UK companies
  • IFRS S1 & S2 – the international sustainability standards under development
  • Accounting for the impact of climate change and sustainability
  • Audit risks relating to climate change and sustainability

 

By attending this session, accountants and auditors will gain an understanding of the current UK reporting requirements, and the impact of climate change and sustainability on the financial statements of entities of all sizes. They will also gain insight into the developments happening at an international level, including the draft IFRS sustainability standards.
