Chair of the IFRS Foundation Trustees Erkki Liikanen delivered the keynote speech at the UNCTAD Intergovernmental Working Group of Experts on International Standards of Accounting and Reporting, introducing the Trustees’ Consultation Paper on Sustainability Reporting.
There will be two live webinarswith a moderated Q&A session held on the Trustees’ consultation on 17 November 2020.
Sustainability and climate change are global challenges, and there is now growing focus on how companies perform and report on these matters. So sustainability reporting is continuing to increase in importance for various stakeholders.
Notwithstanding differences in scope and motivation, most stakeholders share a common message: there is an urgent need to improve the consistency and comparability in sustainability reporting.
