The mix of reporting standards is becoming increasingly complex as the number of options increases. With sustainability as a critical global issue, governments, organizations, and investors focus on sustainability regulatory standards and mandatory disclosure. This session aims to shed light on the significance of sustainability standards, the evolving regulatory landscape, and the implications of mandatory disclosure for businesses and investors as new climate-related disclosures are required in Hong Kong by 2025.

During this session, we will explore the current state of sustainability regulatory standards and their impact on various industries. We will delve into the key frameworks and guidelines, such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB), and Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), among others. By understanding these standards, delegates will gain insights into the expectations placed on organizations regarding sustainability performance measurement and reporting.
