We talk with Barbara Davidson, Head of Accounting, Audit and Disclosure at Carbon Tracker Initiative. We discuss Carbon Tracker’s recent report; Flying Blind: The Glaring Absence of Climate Risks in Financial Reporting, which detailed the troublingly low level of consideration of climate risk impacts in financial climate related reporting for some of the most carbon intensive global companies. We talk about the CA100+ Net Zero Company benchmark and its new Climate Accounting and Audit Assessment that aims to bring better transparency to ‘climate accounting’ issues. Finally, we talk about the efforts of regulators and policymakers around the world and what to expect from coming climate-related disclosure initiatives. More on Carbon Tracker at
