information for investor decision making

This is the second in our Tech Talks series which will take place on the second Thursday of every month.

Tech Talks provides a window on the work of the Technical Committee – what global experts are debating and the answers that are emerging.

In December 2022, The International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB), operating under the International Financial Reporting Standards Foundation (IFRS), published its approach to the concept of sustainability and its articulation with financial value creation.



“Sustainability … is the ability for a company to sustainably maintain resources and relationships with and manage its dependencies and impacts within its whole business ecosystem over the short, medium and long term.” ISSB



The ISSB believes that “By referring to this articulation of the value creation process, a company will be better placed to explain to its investors how it is working sustainably within its business ecosystem—addressing the impacts, risks and opportunities that can affect its performance and prospects—to ultimately deliver financial value for investors.”
