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. For further information please visit the IFRS website.

CDSB are pleased to invite you to a special APPGCC event to introduce you to the “Consistency Project” which is a joint initiative of CDSB, GRI, OECD and UNCTAD.

APPCCG event on "Consistency in Climate Change Disclosure"

Corporate activities both contribute to and offer vital solutions for climate change. Recognising this, governments, investors and other stakeholders are increasingly demanding information from corporations about their greenhouse gas emissions and their strategies for addressing risks and opportunities associated with climate change.  In the absence of an internationally agreed standard for corporate disclosure of climate change-related information, the quality and quantity of information varies. Information is reported through various routes and according to different methodologies and corporate boundaries.  Different national and methodological approaches to reporting increase costs for corporations and limit the comparability of information. Although there have been significant improvements in corporate reporting over the last decade, lack of consistency generates doubts about quality and reliability and impedes effective decision-making.

With this in mind, we are pleased to invite you to a special APPCCG event to introduce you to the “Consistency Project” which is a joint initiative of CDSB, GRI, OECD and UNCTAD. The project is designed to inform and generate debate on how the demand for and supply of climate change related information might be made more consistent. Speakers will include: 

  • Nia Griffith MP, (Chair)
  • Lois Guthrie, Executive Director, Climate Disclosure Standards Board
  • Celine Kaufmann, Directorate for Financial & Enterprise Affairs, OECD
  • Mark Campanale, Founder and Director of Carbon Tracker
  • Richard Tarboton, Head of Energy and Carbon, BT
  • Stephanie Maier, Corporate Responsibility Manager, Aviva Investors
  • Dr Martyn Sene, Deputy Director & Operations Director, National Physics Laboratory
