Invitation to ESG Seminar on the Latest Reporting and Assurance Trends




Date: Jul 20th 2021, 15:00 to 16:00

日期: Jul 20th 2021, 15:00 to 16:00

Dear members:

To help members have a better understanding of the latest expectations and requirements on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG), the China Chamber of Commerce in the UK and KPMG (UK) will jointly hold an ESG Seminar on Tuesday 20th July 2021. KPMG will share insights on the latest ESG reporting and assurance trends, including what will be required of you in the future and what Chinese business in the UK should do now to prepare. This seminar will help you to understand the requirements and expectations about ESG reporting and assurance, provide suggestions to help companies better respond to information disclosure requirements, improve strategic planning, so as to quickly adapt to new opportunities and challenges.

The seminar will focus on the following topic areas:

  • Growing impacts of and trends in ESG – What are the key elements in ESG? What does ESG mean to your business? Why do you need to embed ESG in your strategy? Who cares about ESG?
  • ESG reporting – Whilst there is huge divergence in the quality of ESG reporting in the UK, there are key trends emerging. We will discuss relevant trends and practice from the recent reporting season and highlight practical focus areas for the year ahead.
  • Key issues and considerations in ESG Assurance– We will discuss how to drive confidence in what is being reported and improve the quality and reliability of information included within disclosures for key stakeholders, along with investors, boards and regulators.

This seminar will be delivered mainly in English, with its main points summarised in Chinese at the end. We welcome local employees and customers of the members of the Chamber to participate. Details of this event are as follows:
