New report helps companies and investors make sense of proposed climate disclosure standards

Retrieved on: 
Thursday, June 9, 2022 - 11:00am

TEMPE, Ariz. and LONDON, June 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- A new report "The Evolution of Sustainability Disclosure" released today by the Sustainability Institute by ERM (ERM) and Persefoni reveals that there is substantial convergence among new climate-related disclosure frameworks, namely the proposed rules developed by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the U.S., the European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG) in the EU, and the International Financial Reporting Standards Foundation's (IFRS) International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB). Noting this convergence, the report also points to significant opportunity for greater harmonization, which would increase the comparability and potentially the quality of climate-related disclosure.

Key Points: 
  • Noting this convergence, the report also points to significant opportunity for greater harmonization, which would increase the comparability and potentiallythe quality of climate-related disclosure.
  • In Europe, EFRAG released guidance in April 2022 on a broad range of sustainability-related disclosure requirements, including the European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS) .
  • Rather, as standards setters, their role is to craft sustainability standards that individual jurisdictions and regulators can adopt or otherwise use in their rulemaking.
  • Climate risks and opportunities are a top priority for investors and increasingly for companies.
