Sustainable Reporting in Russia

September 29, THU  /  09:00 - 10:30

Transparency and disclosure are fundamental to sustainable finance. If information about companies' social and environmental performance indicators is not available, investors, insurers and bankers cannot make the right choices about investing, insuring or banking.

Governments are planning to change behavior by creating new legal and regulatory frameworks, introducing mandatory reporting on social and environmental aspects, for example, the European Union Action Plan/Sustainable Finance Disclosures Regulation.

The Russian government is currently working on some potentially innovative initiatives.

Undoubtedly, there are risks, but at the same time there are significant opportunities that will arise if we align our economic activities more closely with the needs of society, while respecting global constraints.

The discussion session will include the following questions:

  • New standards in the new economy;
  • The increasing role of accounting and reporting in the new economic reality;
  • Sustainable development as an opportunity to reduce costs and increase business profitability;
  • Improving the quality of life of the population;
  • Using international experience, what Russia can offer in this area to the world community.
