Civil society statement on the International Sustainability Standards Board

Posted on July, 18 2022

Corporate sustainability reporting is critical to enable better-informed decision-making from companies and financial institutions and provide transparency for consumers, workers, local communities and policymakers

On 31 March, the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) launched a consultation on its first two proposed reporting standards. In this context, NGOs and civil society organisations call on the ISSB to develop standards that go beyond climate, require reporting on key impact data and ensure climate-related disclosures are sufficiently granular to be meaningful. 

 

The ISSB will close the consultation on 29 July and review the feedback in the second half of 2022. We expect the ISSB to publish new reporting standards at the end of the year.
