Climate Risk | FAQ

In 2023 the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) released its inaugural standards – IFRS S1 and IFRS S2. The Standards will create a common language for disclosing the effect of climate-related risks and opportunities on a company’s prospects and help to improve trust and confidence in company disclosures about sustainability to inform investment decisions. Both fully incorporate the recommendations of the FSB Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
  • IFRS S1 provides a set of disclosure requirements designed to enable companies to communicate to investors about the sustainability-related risks and opportunities they face over the short, medium and long term.
  • IFRS S2 sets out specific climate-related disclosures and is designed to be used with IFRS S1.
The Australian government announced it will develop detailed disclosure standards in conjunction with the Australian Accounting Standards Board (AASB) aligned as far as practicable with the ISSB standards. Mandatory reporting for Australian businesses will be implemented from 2024 with organisations meeting lowering thresholds due for reporting in subsequent years.  For detailed information see the Climate-related financial disclosure, Consultation paper. Reporting Financed Emissions Reporting on financed emissions to the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF) Standard involves disclosing the greenhouse gas emissions associated with the activities and investments funded by a financial institution. This reporting framework enables financial institutions to measure and report the carbon footprint of their portfolios, including loans and investments and aims to promote transparency, accountability, and the integration of climate considerations into financial decision-making. This information helps stakeholders assess the environmental impact and risk of the institution’s financing activities and supports the transition to a low-carbon economy.

    Carbon Accounting for Investments - PCAF

    Financial institutions have an important role to play in the global transition to a low carbon economy. Australian financial institutions are increasingly mobilising to better understand not only emissions under direct control of the business, but also emissions associated with the investments and portfolio of assets under finance, or ‘financed emissions’. The flow-on impact on downstream asset owners and operators as financial institutions mature in their understanding of its financed emissions can be significant. The Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF) released the Global Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Accounting and Reporting Standard for the Financial Industry – the first and only of its kind providing robust accounting tools for financed emissions, backed by the GHG Protocol. We help financial institutions take a leading role towards responsible investment, to identify, calculate and transparently report on emissions associated with financed investments, based on the PCAF framework and industry best practice.

    ESG Frameworks

    Financial institutions are increasingly recognising their responsibilities as ethical and social investors, and ensuring Environmental, Social and Corporate governance (ESG) values are reflected in investment decisions. Globally, socially responsible investment that considers ESG factors in portfolio selection and management now stands at over US$30 trillion. Our team are uniquely positioned with deep expertise that spans environmental and social governance. We are able to support financial institutions to create ESG insights reports on downstream financed assets, develop roadmaps to identify and manage ESG risk, support and guide reporting against key ESG risk areas and reduce the emissions intensity of the portfolio, while supporting financial investment objectives.

    Climate Active Certification for the Finance Industry

    The leading carbon neutral certification program in Australia is the Australian Government’s Climate Active Carbon Neutral Program, which requires entities to calculate, reduce, offset, audit and report on emissions based on international standards tailored to Australia.

Our team is adept at navigating the Climate Active process for the finance industry, having worked with some of the most well-known Australian financial institutions and investors to successfully achieve certified carbon neutrality.
