Overview of training content

In June 2023, the International Financial Reporting Standards Foundation (IFRS) ushered in a new era of sustainability-related disclosure in capital markets worldwide with the launch of IFRS S1, “General Requirements for Sustainability-related Financial Information” and IFRS S2 “Climate-related Disclosures.” The IFRS Sustainability Standards were developed by the International Sustainability Standards Board (“ISSB”). In order to help capital market participants to implement the new standards and to build capacity for consistent, global uptake, the UN SSE and IFC have partnered with the IFRS Foundation to provide training free-of charge with UN SSE Partner Exchanges.
