This week, the annual United Nations Climate Conference (COP27) is meeting in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, marking a year since the creation of the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB), by the IFRS Foundation, at COP26 in Glasgow.
The ISSB was created to develop a truly global baseline of sustainability-related disclosures that meet the information needs of investors.
Since Glasgow, significant progress—both technical and institutional—has been made towards delivering the global baseline.
This week at COP27, we are delighted to be announcing further partnerships to support the adoption and implementation of effective sustainability-related disclosures, as momentum continues to build.
As COP27 shines a light on its theme #TogetherForImplementation, we’d like to say thank you to the thousands of stakeholders around the world who have participated in the ISSB’s standard-setting process and advisory bodies, enabling such important progress in this first year.
Stay tuned for further announcements from the #ISSBatCOP27.
