Course description

Free Webinar: A Reshaping of Finance Through Standardized Sustainability Reporting

Sustainable finance – the incorporation of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in investment instruments and decision-making – has now entered the mainstream. In Canada alone, ESG-related assets have now reached $3.2 trillion, representing a growth of 48% since 2018. Larry Fink, CEO of the world’s largest asset manager Blackrock, in his 2020 Letter to CEOs, highlighted that climate change is now a “…defining factor in companies’ long-term prospects.” He predicted that this will lead to a significant reallocation capital “…sooner than most anticipate.” 

Key to such a reallocation is likely to be reliable and comparable information on companies’ sustainability risks and opportunities. Companies have been reporting sustainability information for many years, but the use of a wide range of different frameworks and methodologies have made market comparison problematic. Driven by demand from institutional investors, this is rapidly changing. In late 2020, the five leading sustainability reporting organizations — including the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) and the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) — announced they plan to work together to develop a comprehensive global corporate reporting system. In addition, the International Financial Reporting Standards Foundation, whose financial reporting standards are followed in over 140 jurisdictions, has just concluded a global consultation on establishing a new Sustainability Standards Board to facilitate global sustainability standards.
