This D&T webinar series, developed jointly by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and UN Sustainable Stock Exchanges Initiative (UN SSE) aims to help IFC’s partners in Europe and Central Asia to: 1) Understand the international and EU sustainability disclosure landscape. 2) Practice how to prepare and assess annual reports for investors and other stakeholders, integrating financial and sustainability information according to good international practice. 3) Enhance the knowledge base, skills sets and access resources to provide: a. Training on sustainability disclosure for companies, banks and boards of directors; and b. Policy support on developing ESG reporting guidelines and understanding of green finance for regulators and stock exchanges.
