Summary

Summary

Exchanges are often asked by their issuers questions about the different standards and frameworks on ESG disclosure and are sometimes confronted with confusion regarding different standards. This webinar will offer the opportunity to hear directly from the members of the “G5” group of ESG standard setters and framework creators.

The webinar will focus on their efforts towards strengthening cooperation, coordination and alignment of ESG reporting standards. Participants will get an update on the current state of affairs, including views on the IFRS Foundation’s proposal for a new Sustainability Standards Board. Register now to have the opportunity to ask questions directly to the standard setters.

About the SSE

​The SSE initiative is a UN Partnership Programme organised by UNCTAD, the UN Global Compact, UNEP FI and the PRI. The SSE’s mission is to provide a global platform for exploring how exchanges, in collaboration with investors, companies (issuers), regulators, policymakers and relevant international organizations, can enhance performance on ESG (environmental, social and corporate governance) issues and encourage sustainable investment, including the financing of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The SSE seeks to achieve this mission through an integrated programme of conducting evidence-based policy analysis, facilitating a network and forum for multi-stakeholder consensus-building, and providing technical assistance and advisory services.
