Institute chief to chair Copenhagen debate
Accountancy institute and Big Four firms to discuss global carbon reporting
ICAEW chief executive Michael Izza is to chair a discussion at Copenhagen on
standardising global carbon reporting.
The panel will be deliberating a reporting framework written by the Climate
Disclosure Standards Board.
The session, called Unity for Diversity, will also be hearing highlights of
the recent consultation on the document which ended in September this year.
The panel is to include members of the Big Four including
PricewaterhouseCoopers sustainability and climate change partner, Alan McGill.
Unity for Diversity takes place on Thursday 10 December.
The CDSB was formed in 2007 at the World Economic Forum annual meeting. Their
introduction was in response to demands for standardised reporting guidelines
that were inclusive of climate change information in annual reports.
