Linda Mezon-Hutter, Vice-Chair of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and Sue Lloyd, Vice-Chair of the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) discuss progress made in facilitating connections between financial statements and sustainability-related financial disclosures and in the work of the two boards.
The two Vice-Chairs share examples of connected and complementary work between the two boards in a webcast published today. The collaborative work facilitates holistic, comprehensive and coherent information in companies’ financial reports.
The webcast follows the publication of the inaugural IFRS Sustainability Disclosure Standards, IFRS S1 and IFRS S2, at the end of June.
In March 2023, we published an article about how the IASB and ISSB’s work on climate-related disclosures is connected; and another article about why this connected working matters and the benefits of it.
