The Corporate Reporting Webinar Series offers a deep dive into the International Sustainability Standards Board's (ISSB) two proposed standards, one on general requirements for sustainability-related disclosures and one on climate-related disclosures. We'll discuss how companies can start the ground work, data gathering and processes for ISSB reporting by using tools already widely available for businesses and investors.

The series consists of three parts:

  • Part 1: Better information for better decisions—Introduction to investor-focused sustainability disclosure
  • Part 2: Any size or stage—Getting started on climate disclosure
  • Part 3: Connectivity and controls—the path to investor-grade disclosure

Experts will discuss current good practice and how companies can prepare for the ISSB’s global baseline of disclosure requirements, including with the help of the SASB Standards, TCFD recommendations and CDSB guidance. We’ll also discuss how the Integrated Reporting Framework can connect sustainability and business performance, and how effective processes and controls can enable investor-grade disclosure that is consistent and reliable.

With a strong focus on education and practical application, the webinar series provides resources and insights for high-quality sustainability disclosure.

Part 2: Any size or stage—Getting started on climate disclosure

The second episode of the series focuses on IFRS S2 Climate-related Disclosures, including what climate-related information investors need and the best way for companies to gather and report it. Considering extensive market feedback, we will discuss how phasing and scaling will help companies of any size or stage of development.

An expert panel will discuss how companies are approaching transparency around climate-related risks and opportunities, and how starting now with the SASB Standards, TCFD recommendations and CDSB guidance can support ISSB disclosure in the future, as well as how the ISSB is aligning with different rules and standards such as those in the EU and US.

  • Joe Allanson, Executive Vice President, Finance ESG, Salesforce

Part 3: Connectivity and controls—the path to investor-grade disclosure

The last episode of the series dives deep into connectivity between sustainability disclosure and financial statements, and how this is articulated in IFRS S1.

The session will explore the ISSB’s December announcement around describing the concept of sustainability and financial value creation. With the Integrated Reporting Framework as a key focus, the expert panel will discuss how it helps drive connectivity in both standard-setting and disclosure. We will also address how preparers can raise the quality of sustainability disclosure through internal controls and assurance.
