The International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) was established during COP26, with the intention of developing a high-quality, comprehensive global baseline of sustainable disclosures. The ISSB focuses on the needs of investors and financial markets, ensuring that all relevant sustainability topics are covered (environmental, social, and governance) within disclosure frameworks.
The ISSB published the first set of its draft sustainability disclosure standards for consultation in March 2022. It intends to finalise the two standards by the end of the year.
We have submitted our response to the ISSB’s proposed Climate Exposure Draft.
In addition, IIGCC hosted a webinar with the ISSB on 12 July 2022, exploring the Climate Exposure Draft and the key implications for investors. The webinar provided members with an opportunity to learn more about the disclosure standards, alongside a summary of IIGCC’s emerging consultation recommendations and a Q&A session with the panellists.
