The Canadian Performance Reporting Board (CPRB) is responsible for providing vi- sion and leadership to the work of the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants (CICA) in advancing the measurement and reporting of organizational performance other than financial statement reporting. The CPRB has authority to publish such guidance documents and recommended practices as it considers to be in the best interests of the public.
This publication builds on the CICA MD&A; Guidance* and is intended to assist MD&A; preparers in making decisions about the nature of annual MD&A; disclosures regard- ing the business and financial impacts of climate change issues.
The purpose of this notice is to provide guidance to reporting issuers (other than investment funds) on existing continuous disclosure (CD) requirements relating to environmental matters under securities legislation.
This notice clarifies existing disclosure requirements relating to environmental matters and does not create any new legal requirements or modify existing ones. It is intended to assist issuers in: (1) determining what information about environmental matters needs to be disclosed, and (2) enhancing or supplementing their disclosure regarding environmental matters, as necessary.
Environmental matters include a broad range of issues, including issues related to air, land, water and waste. This notice applies to all issuers but may be more relevant to certain issuers given their particular circumstances.
This CDP research examines levels of climate change disclosure expressed by market capitalisation, across the thirty one largest stock exchanges. We suggest a tipping point has been reached: over 50% of the companies in investor’s equity portfolios now disclose climate change information. Five exchanges have disclosure rates of over 80%, a further three of over 70% and a further four of over 60%. The LSE, BME Spanish Exchanges, Deutsche Borse, Swiss SIX, Nasdaq OMX Nordic, JSE and ASX all perform well. There are some exchanges that have abnormally low levels of disclosure, relative to their size - NYSE, Tokyo, NASDAQ, NSE India, Bombay, Hong Kong and Shanghai.
Over 50% of companies by market capitalisation on the largest thirty-one exchanges now disclose. These mechanisms are available to stock exchanges today. Stock exchanges which do a better job of shining a light on emerging systemic risks will have a competitive advantage.

Climate change creates risks and opportunities for the private sector in emerging markets, and may impact the performance of financial institutions and the companies they invest in. Recognizing knowledge gaps in how climate change will affect the private sector over shorter time horizons, IFC has published Climate Risk and Financial Institutions, a publication that covers climate-related risks material to financial institutions, including commercial banks, institutional investors, and international financial institutions.
Now more than ever, concerns around environmental outcomes are impacting transactions. It is time to ask: What is the deal with climate change?
The issue of climate change is evolving from primarily a scientific and public policy concern to one of business risks and opportunities. Effectively managing these risks and capitalizing on the potential opportunities is now crucial to both the environment and the economy. Companies that develop sound strategies around climate change, as well as enhance reporting capabilities to address heightened stakeholder interest, stand to gain the most.
Those looking to become a part of the renewed vigor in the IPO market may be unprepared for the public scrutiny they are likely to encounter. Mounting interest in companies’ nonfinancial disclosures, such as sustainability and corporate responsibility, leads to a simple question: Is your company prepared?
Climate change has become a topic of intense public discussion in recent years. Scientists, government leaders, legislators, regulators, businesses, including insurance companies, investors, analysts and the public at large have expressed heightened interest in climate change. Some business leaders are increasingly recognizing the current and potential effects on their companies’ performance and operations, both positive and negative, that are associated with climate change and with efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Many companies are providing information to their peers and to the public about their carbon footprints and their efforts to reduce them.
This release outlines our views with respect to our existing disclosure requirements as they apply to climate change matters. This guidance is intended to assist companies in satisfying their disclosure obligations under the federal securities laws and regulations.
UN Environment Programme Finance Initiative's Investor Statement on the risks posed by climate change:
This Statement is supported by 285 investors that represent assets of more than US$20 trillion:
Climate change presents major long-term risks to the global economy and to the assets in which we invest. At the same time, well designed and effectively implemented long-term climate change and clean energy policy (“investment-grade policies”) will not only present significant opportunities for investors in areas such as cleaner and renewable energy, energy efficiency and decarbonisation, but will also yield substantial economic benefits including creating new jobs and businesses, stimulating technological innovation, and providing a robust foundation for economic recovery and sustainable long-term economic growth.

Climate change is a major emerging risk management challenge for institutional investors. Institutional investors, and pension funds in particular, aim to provide pensions and other benefits through long term investment. They can also be seen as ‘universal investors’ in that, due to their size, they commonly invest across the whole economy. If climate change threatens economic development, and especially if there are many or significant impacts, it will also therefore be likely to undermine the ability of pension funds and other institutional investors to fulfil their aims, so it is in their interests to see that risks associated with climate change are minimised. Whilst this responsibility is widely shared, institutional investors are uniquely suited to take particular actions. This paper proposes ten such action points, together with the rationale for this approach.
