The financial system should help deliver climate and social goals, but market failures and inefficiencies prevent finance from being directed where it will make the most positive impact. Investors are increasingly utilising ESG data to inform investment decisions, but a lack of standardisation, poor communication with corporations and a lack of comparable data is leading to confusion and limiting the progress towards a low-carbon, just economy.

Change is afoot. Governments legislating for mandatory climate disclosures, The European Commission’s update to the NFRD, The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive, and the movement towards a global climate reporting standard promises a move towards harmonisation, a common language and a solution to a problem which has constrained the industry for decades. This critical change for business will bring a plethora of new challenges and areas of investment for business.

Reuters Events: Sustainable Finance & Reporting Europe brings together sustainability, policy makers and finance executives to share how they are investing and strategising to ensure they can deliver greater transparency on sustainability risks and transition to a sustainable, climate-friendly economy.

5 essential themes for 2021:

The Age of Hyper Transparency - Mandatory Climate Reporting:

Regulation is now on the horizon and were on the cusp of comparable, standardised, and transparent reporting. However, it’s going to get more complex before it simplifies. Hear from global policy makers, investors and corporates on what the impact of impeding regulation means for business and ways to navigate this change

Climate Reporting Harmonisation:

The path to a sustainable future is through the alignment of standards to a global system, which harnesses the unique power of capital markets to change our global trajectory. Learn how the major standard setters have converged to develop a climate reporting standard and what it could mean for your business

Comparable, Quantifiable, Impactful Data:

The current state of ESG disclosure does not meet the level required. There is a need for a more forward-looking, data-driven and standardized approach that enables greater scrutiny and comparability. Discover the latest approaches in delivering comparable, quantifiable and impactful data

Redefining ESG Investments:

The sustainability transition is the largest investment opportunity in history, but the tools available to inform investment decisions are limiting the progress towards a Net Zero and just economy. Understand how mandatory climate risk reporting, a move towards standardisation and a common language will redefine investment approaches

Financing a Net-Zero Future:

If we are to realise the Net Zero ambition it’s imperative that we reset finance behind a more long-term, ESG-driven setting. Hear how leading investment institutions and corporations are putting ESG at the heart of their future and investing to reach Net Zero
