On 31st January 2022, the Climate Disclosure Standards Board (CDSB) was consolidated into the IFRS Foundation to support the work of the newly established International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB). While this site and its resources remain relevant for preparers looking to improve sustainability disclosure until such time as the ISSB issues its IFRS Sustainability Disclosure Standards on such topics, no further work or guidance will be produced or published by CDSB.

CDSB awarded Sustainability Champion of the Year

CDSB won the award for its efforts to provide investors with environmental information as accurately as financial information.

Last night CDSB was awarded the Sustainability Champion of the Year award by the Accountant and International Accounting Bulletin magazines.

To win this category, contestants have to demonstrate commitment to sustainability in the financial accounting sector by being a driver for change and being an enabler for long term strategies for a more sustainable economy.

One juror commented about CDSB that “it has achieved a lot in a very short time, despite having limited resources”.

Mardi McBrien, CDSB’s Managing Director said: "We are honoured to receive the Sustainability Champion of the Year award. Our success is a testament to the potential for the accounting profession to foster sustainable economic, social and environmental systems using the established mainstream corporate reporting model."
