How to prepare for climate-related disclosures In South Africa: A checklist
In June 2022 the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) published detailed climate reporting guidance to help listed South African companies prepare for an environment where access to company climate data forms an integral pillar of investor and wider stakeholder decision-making.
The climate reporting guidance is a component of broader sustainability reporting guidance that takes into account all aspects of environmental, social, and governance, aligning with ISSB reporting framework proposals. The JSE has also incorporated guidance relating to South Africa's specific challenges around GHG emissions and fossil fuel dependency, in a bid to support an orderly transition to a low-carbon economy.
So, what can organisations in South Africa do to develop robust climate reporting processes and what are the key metrics the guidance advises companies to disclose?
