Join us for the Navigating the Future of Climate-Related Disclosures: Preparing for ISSB Compliance event, co-hosted by HKGFA, Our Hong Kong Foundation, CDP on 13 May (Mon) at 3 pm – 5 pm.

In an era where the importance of climate accountability surpasses mere sustainability to emerge as a key financial concern for corporate entities, the HKGFA is set to organize a training session tailored to prepare listed companies for the forthcoming International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB)-aligned climate disclosure requirements mandated by HKEX. It will address the challenges related to enhancing disclosure capabilities and data accessibility, offering insightful and actionable strategies to effectively overcome these barriers. 

Given the upcoming enforcement of climate-related disclosure requirements by HKEX in early 2025, this training emerges as a crucial resource for companies striving to synchronize their reporting processes with the dynamic landscape of environmental accountability and regulatory compliance.

Time: 3 pm – 5 pm

Venue: 19/F Nan Fung Tower, 88 Connaught Road Central, Hong Kong
