Climate transition planning and disclosure: Getting it right.
5th December – 12.30-13.15 – Climate Action Stage – Climate Action Innovation Zone –   Led by TPT Secretariat in partnership with ICAEW, and Accounting for Sustainability (A4S).
Effective climate transition planning requires organisations, governments, and societies to develop strategies for how they will adapt to a low-carbon economy while mitigating the risks associated with climate change. Transition is not just about reducing your own emissions; it’s also about using the levers you have available to support the transition of the broader economy and create new opportunities in a rapidly evolving landscape. Disclosure is a critical step of the transition planning process. Transparency allows for accountability, by providing stakeholders, including investors, regulators, and the public, with clear, comprehensive, and accurate information regarding entities’ plans and progress towards a more sustainable and resilient future.
