International Sustainability Standards Board Standards Seminar (Guernsey)
International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) Standards allow companies and investors to standardise on a single, global baseline of sustainability disclosures for the capital markets.
The aim is to simplify the global sustainability disclosure landscape, reducing the complexity of having multiple sources of reporting guidance, while building on the established expertise and practice.
The standards are seen as creating a new global baseline of sustainability reporting.
Grant Thornton’s in-house ESG expert, Dipak Vashi, will cover and explore the following topics:
- Intro to S1
- Intro to S2
- Similarities between TCFD and S2, where overlaps can be found
- Effective date and jurisdictional mandating of the standards
- Transition reliefs
- Next steps, what everyone needs to do now to report
