  • A closer look — Climate change

    published 12 Dec 2019

    A growing number of scientific projections detail not only potential average increases in global temperatures, but also the consequences, such as rising sea levels and more frequent extreme weather events. Economic forecasts are also increasingly reflecting these impacts, including related factors such as carbon pricing initiatives and changing demand for fossil fuels and renewable energy. It is critical to recognise that the past is no longer a predictor of the future. As a result, investors, regulators and other business stakeholders are increasingly demanding better disclosures on climate change matters and challenging companies that are not factoring the effects of climate change into their critical accounting judgements. This Closer Look publication provides an overview of investor and regulatory focus, and explores a framework for companies to use in responding to climate-related matters, including areas in the financial statements and in narrative reporting that might be affected. It also signposts further guidance and resources.
