IESBA Statement on the release of ISSB's First Two Sustainability Standards

Jun 26, 2023 | English

Congratulations to the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) for achieving a major milestone today, releasing its #sustainability-related disclosure standards S1 and S2! These new standards establish a holistic framework that will drive greater consistency, accuracy, and comparability in sustainability information disclosures at a global level.    
IESBA believes strong reporting and assurance standards must work under the umbrella of equally strong #ethics standards to foster public confidence in sustainability information. Therefore, to complement the achievements of the ISSB and the new sustainability assurance standards being developed by the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB), IESBA is on track to develop robust ethics and independence standards on #sustainabilityreporting and assurance that can be used by all sustainability information preparers and assurance practitioners worldwide.
