Commenting on the announcement of the formation of the International Sustainability Standards Board, Michael Izza, ICAEW Chief Executive, said:

“This new board will address the urgent need for a set of global, high-quality and authoritative standards for non-financial reporting on climate and sustainability, and we strongly support its formation.

“This is a major step forward for reporting around sustainability and towards the development of a truly international corporate reporting system.

“Climate change is one of the biggest challenges humanity has ever faced, and chartered accountants are in the vanguard of solutions to this challenge.

“We look forward to continuing to work closely with the IFRS Foundation on this very important project.”
