Event description

Description

Presented by the Sydney Environment Institute.

Part One of the Business Making of Climate Change series.

Climate change poses legal, regulatory, reputational, technological, as well as physical threats to business. This seminar examines these many risks, with particular emphasis on the perspective of investors. Why are financial regulators, investors and other entities demanding greater insight into the financial risks and opportunities posed by climate change? Are businesses responding to these demands? If so, how? And does that response hold up under scrutiny?

This event brings together investors, lawyers and academics as they consider these questions. In doing so, the speakers will outline the case for publicly listed companies to develop governance structures, risk management, strategies, metrics and targets for climate-related risks and opportunities that, where material, are disclosed in annual financial reports.

The Speakers

  • Sarah Barker, MinterEllison
  • Emma Herd, Investor Group on Climate Change
  • Kate Bromley, QIC
  • Zoe Whitton, Citi
  • Jillian Reid, Mercer
  • Dr Tanya Fiedler (Chair), University of Sydney Business School
