Evaluating the effectiveness of Aotearoa New Zealand Climate-related Disclosures
30 November 2023
The University of Otago’s Climate and Energy Finance Group (CEFGroup) are asking for participants to complete their survey on the ‘Effectiveness evaluation of the Aotearoa New Zealand Climate Related Disclosure Standards.’ This project has been funded by the External Reporting Board and aims to collect valuable insights from Climate Reporting Entities.
The survey is intended to allow your organization the chance to share experiences with climate-related reporting as a reporter, user or broader stakeholder and to help shape the future of this regime and the global understanding of climate-related disclosures.
Key topics covered include:
- Greenhouse gas emissions disclosures
- Climate related risks
- Sector-scenario analysis
You can participate in the impact evaluation survey's below.
For Reporting Entities (Mandatory and voluntary) and Primary users:
