ESG: New Regulations and what to expect as a listed company
On this episode of the IR Update, we covered one of the most discussed topics in IR this year: the most recent regulatory updates with ESG reporting space, upcoming regulations, what are the most immediate changes that we expect to see over the next 12 months, and much more.
Alina covers the details of how regulation changes affect listed companies, including which companies will be subject to compliance. She also reviews what companies can do today to prepare and adjust to the new expectations concerning sustainability and climate reporting.
Reporting ESG is an ongoing battle for investor relations professionals, and Alina discusses how can free-form reports on corporate and social responsibility be leveraged in transitioning to ESG reporting. And about that, she also explains what are the most important frameworks to be aware of and follow. As a last topic, Alina reviews the differences between Carbon Neutrality and Net Zero, and provides great insights into how to develop these strategies.
