Digital Sustainability Disclosures

Digital Sustainability Disclosures

By Devlekar 9 December, 2022

Securities regulators and policy makers right around the world are pushing towards new mandatory ESG (or sustainability disclosures) for companies in markets large and small. The majority firmly intend that these new broader kinds of corporate reports will be digital. Generally this means formatted in Inline XBRL and available for consumption, comparison and analysis by users of all kinds. This all represents a major expansion for XBRL-based reporting, but it also throws up a range of questions.

The initial work that has been carried out within this “Digital Sustainability Disclosures – Special Interest Group” or “SIG” have now been published. The SIG has been diving into those aspects of sustainability disclosure that are somewhat different to perhaps more familiar reporting and working to agree some proposed best practices or agreed approaches to some of these challenges.
