Presentation 

Climate-related financial disclosures Bill introduced to Parliament - the next step for certain entities reporting under the Corporations Ac

On 12 January 2024 the Australian Treasury released draft legislation for its proposed climate-related financial disclosure regime. The legislation builds upon previous consultations by Treasury. It proposes a mandatory regime for large businesses and financial institutions to disclose their climate -related risks and opportunities. The aim of the exposure draft is to bring Australia in line with other jurisdictions such as the EU, the UK, New Zealand and Japan which have climate related disclosure regimes. 

WHO WILL IT APPLY TO?


The disclosure regime is intended to apply to:

  • large entities (including listed and unlisted companies, financial institutions, registrable superannuation entities and registered investment schemes) that lodge annual reports under Chapter 2M of the Corporations Act;

  • superannuation funds and managed investment schemes and other asset owners with funds under management of more than AUD5b; and

  • entities reporting under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007 (Cth) known as the NGER Act.

This presentation will focus on how how Energy and Mining organisations can prepare
