Sustainability & ESG Executive Forum | Session VII

During this session, we were delighted to be joined by Mardi McBrien, Director of Strategic Affairs for the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) Foundation, who discussed upcoming ISSB standards, including alignment with other global standards (e.g., GRI, CSRD), steps you can take to prepare for the mid-year release of the IFRS standards, and ISSB priorities beyond 2023.

We also welcomed Dr. Stephanie Hime, Managing Director of Little Blue Research Ltd., Technical Advisory panel member of the Capitals Coalition, and TNFD forum member on current market developments on how businesses can measure their relationship with nature — including comments on the release of the draft Task Force for Nature Related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) and Science Based Targets for Nature, the context and drivers for these developments, and how they align with each other and existing standards.
