The goal of mandatory climate-related disclosures

  • ensure that the effects of climate change are routinely considered in business, investment, lending and insurance underwriting decisions
  • help climate reporting entities better demonstrate responsibility and foresight in their consideration of climate issues
  • lead to more efficient allocation of capital, and help smooth the transition to a more sustainable, low emissions economy.

Mandatory climate-related disclosures will help New Zealand meet its international obligations and achieve its target of net zero carbon by 2050. By improving transparency and revealing climate-related information within financial markets, our financial system will become more resilient and climate change risks outlined in the National Climate Change Risk Assessment will be addressed.

Reduce repetitive, manual tasks

Many companies are expected to report in various formats across jurisdictions and through third parties such as CDP. The Author solution from Diligent ESG lets you capture data once and then flow it across relevant portions of different reports.
