Created by the External Reporting Board (XRB) and Financial Markets Authority (FMA), this guide is intended to provide directors with a quick reference for key things they need to know about Aotearoa New Zealand’s forthcoming climate-related disclosures regime.
This guide provides an overview of the current status of the climate-related disclosures framework. It also outlines some of the key considerations and best practice areas for directors to consider as they prepare for their governance role in relation to climate-related disclosures.
It is not intended to be comprehensive and includes links to more detailed supporting information. We recommend that directors and their management teams stay up to date with the climate-related disclosures framework as it evolves.
The Chapter Zero NZ May webinar: Director lens on disclosures provided an overview of Aotearoa New Zealand’s Climate Related Disclosures framework with presenters XRB Chair Michele Embling, Director Climate Standards Dr Amelia Sharman and experienced Audit and Risk Chair Jonathan Mason.
