|Information || Investors are increasingly calling for high quality transparent reliable and comparable reporting by companies on climate and other environmental social and governance (ESG) matters. The IFRS Foundation Trustees recently announced the creation of a new standard-setting board—the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB)—to help meet this demand. The ISSB has already commenced work on developing two proposed IFRS Sustainability Standards: One sets out general sustainability-related disclosure requirements and the other specifies climate-related disclosure requirements. In this course we take a look at the role of the ISSB and its proposed standards for enhancing corporate reporting around ESG matters going forward|
