The global climate reporting landscape is rapidly evolving. On June 26, 2023, the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) issued its first two standards - S1 General Requirements for Disclosure of Sustainability-related Financial Information; and S2 Climate-related Disclosures - providing markets and regulators with a global baseline for investor-oriented sustainability disclosure. These standards are designed to enhance disclosures by companies around the globe about the sustainability risks and opportunities they face, providing investors with more consistent, comparable, and reliable information.

Since the ISSB was launched at COP26in 2021, there has been significant interest from regulators, industry associations, investors, and corporations alike. As Asia-Pacific jurisdictions begin to adopt the ISSB standards, it is imperative from both a regulatory compliance and value creation perspective to integrate consideration of sustainability risks and opportunities across governance, strategy, and risk management, and to establish rigorous processes for disclosures of metrics and targets. In this webinar, we’ll dive deeper into how the ISSB will help accelerate the global drive toward more transparent and reliable corporate emissions disclosures, and what companies can do to stay ahead of the curve and navigate the transition to a decarbonizing economy effectively.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the significance of consistent sustainability-related disclosure standards in bolstering investor confidence. Learn how ISSB standards are built upon established frameworks like TCFD, SASB, and CDSB, promoting global cohesion.
  • Discuss the core components of the ISSB's inaugural standards and how they address the need for comprehensive climate-related financial disclosures, including greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
  • Explore the initial response of Asia-Pacific markets -  such as Singapore, Hong Kong, and Australia - to the announcement of the ISSB’s inaugural standards.
  • Understand how collecting and reporting transparent, traceable, and credible greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions data can enable companies to navigate the transition to a decarbonizing economy effectively.
  • Learn how to navigate the world of carbon credits, leveraging decision-useful emissions data to build effective reduction strategies and support reporting about targets that adheres to global disclosure standards.
