ISCA Climate Disclosure Guide - Taking First Steps Towards Climate-related Disclosures

With increasing attention on the effects of climate change, decision-makers are urgently demanding climate-related information. This is reaffirmed by the introduction of mandatory climate reporting by the Singapore Exchange (SGX) and the prioritisation of climate-related disclosures in the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB)’s highly anticipated IFRS Sustainability Disclosure Standards proposals, both of which are based on the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD Recommendations). ISSB’s proposals also incorporate industry-based disclosure requirements derived from Sustainability Accounting Standards Board.

This guide seeks to help Singapore-listed companies meet SGX’s requirements for climate reporting. In addition, given the strong signals from key stakeholder groups, even non-listed companies must consider if sufficient climate-related information is available to meet stakeholder expectations, and this guide will be useful for voluntary adoption of the TCFD Recommendations as well.

To provide practical guidance on how to adopt the TCFD Recommendations, the guide features exemplary disclosures sourced from local forerunners and global exponents that illustrate how the various recommended disclosures can be met.

Also covered in the guide are the learning experiences of advanced adopters, with practical considerations gleaned from their experiences and other observations to further smoothen the journey for new adopters.

This guide is developed with the support of SGX, ISCA’s Sustainability and Climate Change Committee (SCCC) and the SCCC Sustainability Excellence Sub-Committee, in support of the Singapore Green Plan 2030.
