Sustainability and ESG
The consideration of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) issues has undergone a fundamental shift in the corporate world, and companies are now incorporating ESG factors into their analysis and decision-making processes to identify both risks and growth opportunities. The rise of ESG has brought about unprecedented regulations for enterprise sustainability reporting and disclosures. The International Sustainability Board (ISSB) is working to establish global standards for sustainability and climate-related reporting, with the release of these standards expected in mid-2023. As a result of these new regulations, financial and sustainability reporting are likely to be more closely intertwined in 2024
The International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) is set to release global standards for sustainability disclosures by corporations and financial institutions, based on TCFD recommendations and the standards set by organizations like SASB. The ISSB guidance, expected to replace the UN’s SSE Model Guidance on Climate Disclosure, will serve as the blueprint for companies to follow. The ISSB standards will likely become the new benchmark for sustainability reporting worldwide, replacing current standards and guidelines.
