ISSB delivers proposals that create comprehensive global baseline of sustainability disclosures

ISSB (March 2022)

This insight covers the release of the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB)’s first two proposed standards for market consultation. One covers general sustainability-related disclosure requirements, and the other looks at climate-related disclosure requirements. While neither proposed ISSB standard covers nature-related disclosures explicitly, the proposed general sustainability-related disclosure requirements demand that organisations ‘disclose material information about all of the significant sustainability-related risks and opportunities to which it is exposed.’
