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.

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.
