The future of SOX and internal controls: incorporating ESG

Sept. 13, 2022
12:30 - 1:30 p.m. PT

The environmental, social and governance (ESG) landscape continues to evolve as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) moves forward with rulemaking to enhance and standardize registrants’ climate-related disclosures for investors. What does this mean for your Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX)-related disclosure controls and internal controls to support your external reporting? Companies need to look beyond their existing SOX program and current risk assessment process to incorporate climate-related and ESG risk management practices into their financial reporting activities. In this session, we discuss the important role of internal audit in advancing the evolution of risk assessments, information aggregation, and reporting management in response to the evolving ESG landscape.

Learning objectives:
After attending this session, attendees will be able to:

  1. Describe the current climate-related disclosures and ESG internal controls landscape and the impacts to your company
  2. State how climate-related disclosures and ESG reporting impacts your internal control environment
  3. Apply principles and strategies to efficiently incorporate climate-related disclosures and ESG into your internal control framework and SOX program
