ESG Disclosures Masterclass – TCFD to IFRS S1, IFRS S2, and CSRD/ESRS

Welcome to the ESG Masterclass program – your destination for an intensive two-day journey towards becoming a master in integrating environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations into professional decision-making. In today’s corporate landscape, ESG is a default expectation, a driver of innovation, brand enhancement, and the very heart of transparency in assessing a company’s impact on the environment, society, employees, and customers.

The corporate world is at the cusp of a major transformation. The assets committed to socially responsible investing are rapidly multiplying, and a whopping quarter of global assets under management, exceeding USD 23 trillion, now consciously factor in ESG influences. This tectonic shift necessitates advanced reporting practices. In alignment with this, the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) has recently issued its pioneering IFRS Sustainability Disclosure Standards – IFRS S1 and IFRS S2. These trailblazing standards, effective from 1st January 2024, mark a decisive step forward in global sustainability reporting.

Our program has been designed for professionals seeking to navigate and influence this transformative landscape. Providing an exhaustive overview of ESG concepts and practices, our curriculum spans crucial topics such as climate change, social responsibility, human rights, corporate governance, and sustainable investing. In light of the new IFRS sustainability standards, our expert instructors will guide you through real-world case studies and hands-on exercises, helping you grasp ESG best practices and leverage the ‘climate first’ transition option to drive your first year of reporting under these standards.

By the end of this course, you will be adept at identifying ESG risks and opportunities, developing robust strategies to address them, and seamlessly integrating ESG considerations into your professional sphere. Regardless of your role – be it an investor, a business leader, or a sustainability professional – the ESG Masterclass is your launchpad to accelerate professional growth.

Join us to immerse yourself in this dynamic, purpose-driven transformation and turn the ESG tide in your favour. Enrol today and empower yourself to steer your organization and the world towards a sustainable, equitable future. Seize this opportunity to stay ahead of the curve and be the change you wish to see.
