About this Event

UNSW Business School’s Responsible Business Program is sponsoring in-part a conference dedicated to ‘Rebuilding trust through transparency’ and invites our community of practice members to register for a limited number of free places at key plenaries.

The conference is held by the Australasian Centre for Social and Environmental Accounting Research (A-CSEAR), part of an international membership-based network that aims to mobilise accounting scholarship to enable a more sustainable society. CSEAR is a global community of scholars engaging with students, activists, practitioners, policy makers and other interested groups in order to generate and disseminate knowledge on social and environmental accounting and accountability. The events are:

Climate change is one of the greatest opportunities this century. The untold story is that climate change offers opportunities, as well as risk, and business and the market as a whole is well equipped to respond with new products, technologies and operating models. Mardi will discuss the developments in the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), Natural Capital Protocol, Environmental Reporting and other Initiatives of the Climate Disclosure Standards Board.

Friday Dec 13, 1.30-2.30pm- Monitoring , measuring and evaluation of Modern slavery Risks.

Assoc Prof Justine Nolan, UNSW Law. Moderator: Assoc. Prof Tracy Wilcox, UNSW Sydney.

This assessment will require monitoring, measurement and evaluation of risks and responses. Justine will discuss the challenges and opportunities that exist in monitoring, measuring and evaluation of modern slavery risks.
