Reporting on social and environmental performance – update on federal reporting requirements and trends
Event Type: Webinar Series
Date: 06 May, 2021 11:00 AM AEST
The webinar will focus on recent regulatory initiatives by the Commonwealth Government in public reporting and disclosure. The Modern Slavery Act (2018) requires a company to prepare an annual statement outlining how it is identifying and addressing modern slavery risks in its operations and supply chains. The first of these statements are now available. The National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act (2007) has been in operation much longer and best practices and expectations in carbon reporting continue to evolve. Financial regulators, such as ASIC, have also incorporated requirements for companies to disclose climate risks. This webinar will look at reporting requirements, practices and trends in human rights and modern slavery as well as climate change and carbon.
