Regulators around the world are strengthening their encouragements, in some cases requirements, for climate change disclosure for listed companies. In December 2020, regulators in Hong Kong joined the group, announcing they will start requiring a mandatory disclosure on climate change in 2025. However, the world still does not seem to have an established set of standards on climate change disclosure. Companies' disclosures are often criticized toward opportunities, rather than risks. What should be a globally fair set of rules that enable investors to compare companies across the globe? Asian countries have lagged behind in the competition to set the global standards on climate change. Is it already too late for Asian countries, including Japan, to have a say?
In the panel session, we will discuss what are the key ingredients of the global disclosure standard so that asset managers and companies across the world can stay informed on the emerging global trend in climate change disclosure.
