Upcoming Event

Impact X Summit Melbourne 2024

Climate change poses considerable risks to businesses of every size and industry, including more extreme weather events, natural resource scarcity and changing regulations. With Australia now introducing mandatory climate risk disclosure from January 2025, ASIC has called for businesses to ‘start preparing now’. The most significant and complex change to corporate reporting in a generation, this will require more than 6000 large companies to comply over the next few years and produce ESG data and disclosure across their supply chains.

The Impact X Summit Melbourne will gather business leaders, directors and sustainability practitioners to address the future of ESG data and disclosure together. The Summit offers two separate programs for corporates and investors. Speakers will look at regulation and frameworks, nature-related disclosures, improved data collection, and how ESG collaboration and transparency across supply chains can support improved performance and growth.
