-- Canada’s public companies now have clear guidance that they must disclose material environmental risks and opportunities to their investors. Companies also need to be careful that statements in voluntary disclosure (such as Carbon Disclosure Project reports) are consistent with other statements to investors.
Getting securities disclosure around environmental issues correct is a big and evolving challenge. In many cases, it may require new lines of communication between sustainability professionals and their co-workers involved in securities disclosure.
SPRiNG would like to invite professionals from the sustainability, environmental, corporate responsibility (CSR) and related spheres to attend a dialogue and networking event on the topic. Featuring an introduction by Travis Allan, Zizzo Allan Climate Law LLP, the event will encourage participants to engage in a dialogue among peers to examine the critical issues and ideas that have been raised.
