IFRS – General Sustainability-Related Disclosures

IFRS – General Sustainability-Related Disclosures

By Prathamesh 7 September, 2022

The International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB), established at COP26 to develop a comprehensive global baseline of sustainability disclosures for the capital markets, launched a consultation on its first two proposed standards on 31 March 2022. One sets out general sustainability-related disclosure requirements, and the other specifies climate-related disclosure requirements.

The Exposure Draft IFRS S1 General Requirements for Disclosure of Sustainability-related Financial Information (General Requirements Exposure Draft) sets out the overall requirements for an entity to disclose sustainability-related financial information about all its significant sustainability-related risks and opportunities, to provide the market with a complete set of sustainability-related financial disclosures.

On finalisation the proposed standards would form a comprehensive global baseline of sustainability-related disclosures designed to meet the information needs of investors in assessing enterprise value.
