Demand for corporate Environmental Social Governance (ESG) data continues to grow among investors, policy setters, and the public. Regulators worldwide are taking action. The IFRS Foundation has formed the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) tasked with creating digitized ESG standards. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is expected to announce a rule proposal on climate-related disclosures in the coming weeks.
Members of the XBRL US ESG Working Group, which includes SEC filers, corporate governance and investor relations professionals, analysts and investors, as well as XBRL software providers, have collaborated to identify challenges in using ESG reports today, and determine how these disclosures can be made more consistent, accessible, and useful, while minimizing reporting burden for issuers.
Attend this webinar to view sample machine-readable ESG reports and to hear the working group findings and recommendations for regulators including: render data machine-readable, address how to manage multiple ESG frameworks, ensure data visualizations produce concrete datasets, help issuers meet the needs of different users, enable commingling of ESG data with other types of data, and more.
