Towards Global Sustainability Disclosure Standards

April 14, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The Center for International Development‘s “Road to GEM23” climate and development series precedes and helps launch the May 2023 Global Empowerment Meeting (GEM23)​, “Growing in a Green World”. This spring, CID strives to elevate and learn from voices from the countries on the frontlines of the climate crisis, and feature important learnings from the leaders who will be active participants at GEM23. On Friday, April 14 at 12-1pm ET, CID presents Isabel Saint Malo, Senior Policy Adviser to the Administrator of the United Nations Development Program, Former Vice President of Panama.

Focused on developing standards that can provide a common language for sustainability information, to enable comparable and consistent sustainability disclosures across global capital markets, the IFRS is working on global sustainability standards and set up the ISSB for such purpose. The ISSB is working with jurisdictions around the world, as well as market participants, to deliver this.

IFRS Sustainability Disclosure Standards will provide the foundations for globally applicable disclosure requirements, thereby establishing a consistent and comprehensive global baseline. The ISSB’s global baseline will be developed to provide the information that is material to investors globally.

Register on Zoom.

This is a virtual-only event open to the public.
