Webinar: The inaugural IFRS´ ISSB standards and their implications for Latin American Markets, a GSG event in collaboration with IFRS Foundation and Reporte Integrado
The GSG, the IFRS Foundation, and Reporte Integrado Latam jointly organised the webinar: “El ISSB, una base global para la divulgación de información financiera sobre sostenibilidad, y su relevancia para América Latina” (translation: The ISSB, a global baseline for the disclosure of financial information on sustainability, and its relevance for Latin America), with the support of ANDE, Latimpacto, and Sistema B.
The event gathered hundreds of participants from over 10 Iberoamerican countries, evidencing outstanding commitment and interest from key stakeholders in Latin America and Spain to promote greater transparency on sustainability impacts, collaboratively.
During the event, Arturo Rodriguez, representing the IFRS Foundation, presented the recently launched standards IFRS S1 on General Sustainability-related Disclosures, and IFRS S2 on Climate Related Disclosures. Following the presentation, a panel of experts from key Latin American jurisdictions discussed the main opportunities and challenges for adoption of the standards in the region, highlighting implications for regulators, investors and corporations.
This webinar, GSG´s first-ever event in Spanish, marked a significant milestone in our work to advance impact transparency globally, building on our roles as inaugural members of the ISSB’s Sustainability Consultative Committee and signatories of its Partnership Framework for Capacity Building.
