CEO GUIDE to Climate Risk Disclosure
14 December 2016

The next few years will see a rapid change in the global reporting regulatory landscape, as investors demand greater transparency in order to analyse a company’s business risks and opportunities resulting from impacts of climate change.

As evidence of this trend, Sustainable Business Australia today released the Australian CEO Guide to Climate Risk Disclosure which outlines the importance of climate risk disclosure and where Australian business and other organisations see the future of the reporting in comparison to the rest of the world.

    Jacobs has been awarded the Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE) citation for 2016/17 by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) in Australia.

    It is one of more than of 100 employers that were successful this year in receiving the citation – an interesting increase from 2015, signifying a broader focus on gender equality over the past year in Australia.

    A major aspect of the success achieved by Jacobs this year has been its focus on inclusion and flexibility, progressing to a 2016/17 goal to support more women into leadership roles. Integral to this ongoing focus has been a decision to establish specific women in leadership targets for some key areas of the Jacobs business.
