The International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) has proposed a Sustainability Disclosure Taxonomy. The proposal addresses a taxonomy for the disclosure requirements in IFRS S1 and IFRS S2 to facilitate digital reporting of sustainability-related financial information. Comments are due September 26, 2023.
This week’s Genuine Learning Blog looks at IFRS S2 – Climate-related Disclosures. Issued the same day as S1, these disclosures focus on strategy, governance, metrics and risk management but particularly in relation to climate related risks and opportunities. S2 is effective for annual reporting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2024. Earlier application is permitted as long as IFRS S1 is also applied.
