The International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) published its proposed standards on general sustainability-related disclosures and climate-related disclosures on 31 March 2022. With the consultation period ending on 29 July 2022, the ISSB’s aim is to finalise the requirements by the end of the year, subject to feedback.
