The risks and opportunities associated with environmental and climate changes are central to strategic planning for all organisations. Directors are making commitments to customers, employees, suppliers and partners, as well as to investors. This raises a critical challenge in relation to how they obtain assurance that there is substance to these commitments.
Regulators are requiring disclosures in the annual report: for the largest listed companies TCFD is now a requirement. Beyond this there is an expectation that climate risks will appear within the principal risk sections and for financial services regulated companies the FCA and PRA will take a keen interest.
This webinar will consider the range of options available to directors to obtain assurance, exploiting the existing mechanisms available through the first, second and third line of defence internally. The role of internal audit in facilitating and coordinating this process will also be discussed. Furthermore, we will explore when and how companies might seek external assurance through their external auditors or other parties.
As this is a rapidly evolving requirement, it's essential for internal auditors and risk managers to stay ahead and to be able to inform and advise the broader leadership team.
