The role of the ISSB in driving international sustainable standards
The drastic increase in environmental, social and governance reporting standards and requirements for the financial and corporate sector has led to divergence in metrics, language and ESG transition information. The International Sustainability Standards Board established by the International Financial Reporting Standards is a first step in developing a global, baseline, corporate reporting standard on climate change and sustainability. It aims to provide investors and other capital market participants with information about companies’ sustainability-related risks and opportunities.
In this off-the-record discussion, Mardi McBrien, managing director at the Climate Disclosure Standards Board, discusses the objectives, aims and targets of the ISSB, how it will integrate and work with other standards and how it will work with investors.
