This week marked a major consolidation in the ESG standard setting arena. The IFRS Foundation completed its consolidation of the Value Reporting Foundation (VRF). The IFRS Foundation is the parent entity to the IASB who writes IFRS. It will now also be the parent to the new International Sustainability Standards Board’s (ISSB) which is working to develop a comprehensive global baseline of sustainability disclosures for the capital markets and will leverage the resources of the VRF as part of this consolidation.
