PART 1: Introducing Product Carbon Footprint, a Pathway towards Product Sustainability
Tuesday, April 16 | 10-11am CET

PCF encompasses all stages from raw material extraction, production, transportation, product use to final disposal. It can be a complex and lengthy process, requiring both primary and secondary data collection and the application of calculation methodologies. Companies are increasingly seeking independent third-party verification of their PCF to ensure credibility, transparency and compliance with regulations and standards related to carbon footprint disclosure. It also provides additional assurance to establish an accurate benchmarking baseline for continuous improvement. In this webinar, our carbon experts shares his views on:

  • Why and how should organisations develop PCFs?
  • What can be learned from existing government initiatives and PCF labels?
  • What enablers and hurdles exist for PCF development and how can they be overcome?
  • What to expect during a verification of a PCF?
  • Questions and answers

PART 2: Understanding Non-Financial Reporting Assurance: Ensuring Transparency and Accountability
Thursday, April 18 | 10-11am CET

With EU’s adoption of the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), the first batch of large corporation will be legally required to report on relevant non-financial information according to the applicable standard of European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS) from the fiscal year of 2024. In addition, limited level of independent assurances must be provided to ensure the information disclosed are in an extensive, transparent and accurate manner.  Many more companies will follow in the subsequent years with the possibility of increasing the external assurance to reasonable level. In view of global landscape, a steady increase is also observed year over year for companies in many other regions and jurisdictions, which are reporting and obtaining assurance over their sustainability disclosures as demanded by market regulators, investors, stakeholders and governments.

With multiple reporting frameworks and assurance standards actively playing a role in regulating non-financial reporting activities, in this webinar our expert will take a deep dive to explain the concept of non-financial reporting, applicability of different reporting frameworks and assurance standards with a case study to illustrate the benefit of non-financial reporting assurance.

  • Overview of global trends and regulatory frameworks in non-financial reporting
  • The concept of assurance for non-financial reporting
  • The process of performing an assurance engagement
  • Case study: how assurance provides transparency and accountability
  • Questions and answers
