ISSB grants companies extra year for climate-related reporting

In recent news, the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) has granted companies an additional year to focus on climate-related reporting under the new climate disclosure standards. This extension aims to enable companies to concentrate their initial efforts on meeting investor information needs regarding climate change. Informed by investor feedback, the decision emphasises the urgency for disclosures about climate-related risks and opportunities in the current economic landscape. This additional year will allow companies to better understand and address their climate-related exposure, ultimately enabling them to create more resilient and sustainable business models.

ISSB chair Emmanuel Faber said, “The upcoming introduction of the ISSB’s Standards establishing the global baseline is being welcomed by companies urgently looking for tools to meet the information needs of their investors. This transitional relief ensures companies can phase in their approach, initially focusing on the quality of the climate-related information they provide.”
