Beyond the Horizon:
Corporate Reporting on Climate Change

Monday, Oct. 2, 2017

Noon - 1:30 pm

 

 

Increasingly, companies are taking a closer look at how they describe climate risks and opportunities to their investors and other stakeholders. This summer, the Financial Stability Board Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures provided recommendations to improve the quality and consistency of this reporting. C2ES invites you to a public webinar to discuss corporate climate reporting. The webinar will discuss opportunities and challenges drawn from a new C2ES report "Beyond the Horizon: Corporate Reporting on Climate Change."
