Finance Leaders Plugging the Net-Zero Information Gap: Exploring the critical role of CFOs and finance teams in the climate transition
Sep 21, 2022 09:00 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)

The practice of publicly disclosing transition plans is rapidly evolving, and yet significantly fewer companies have disclosed comprehensive plans than have committed to reach net-zero or pledged to reach climate neutrality. There’s no quick fix towards achieving climate commitments, but companies need to understand and communicate their climate-related risks and opportunities and how they plan to meet their climate commitments.

In this Climate Week NYC event co-hosted by IFAC and A4S, we'll hear from finance leaders at various steps of their transition journeys and explore their perspectives on:

- Enabling an organization’s transition planning
- Overcoming key challenges including financing and data
- Where CFOs have the most to add in terms of achieving climate targets and developing and executing transition plans
- CFO expectations of reporting standards and requirements that would facilitate company disclosure

Moderated by Jessica Fries, Executive Chair, A4S, the panel discussion will feature:
- Shamsul Bahar, VP & Group Financial Controller, PETRONAS
- Patti Humble, IMA Board Member, and Chief Accounting Officer, UPS
- Kee Chan Sin, Assistant Treasurer - Capital Markets & Corporate Finance, Verizon
- Swami Venkataraman, Associate Managing Director, ESG, Moody’s
- Jing Zhang, Head of Climate Research, IFRS Foundation
