On 31st January 2022, the Climate Disclosure Standards Board (CDSB) was consolidated into the IFRS Foundation to support the work of the newly established International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB). While this site and its resources remain relevant for preparers looking to improve sustainability disclosure until such time as the ISSB issues its IFRS Sustainability Disclosure Standards on such topics, no further work or guidance will be produced or published by CDSB. For further information please visit the IFRS website.

Patrick is working with companies to use CDSB’s Climate Change Reporting Framework to integrate non-financial and financial information in mainstream reports - to communicate climate change and natural capital impacts.  Changing careers from Head of Business Development at the UK’s Telegraph Media Group Patrick joined CDP in 2007 working to set up the new Supply Chain Program.  He moved on to program manage, with Accenture, Microsoft and SAP, the upgrade of the CDP systems to create the de facto global climate change data and reporting platform.  His aim is to integrate this valuable information into business strategy as we head towards a low carbon future.  Patrick has an MBA from London Business School and received the MSc in Responsibility and Business Practice from Bath University.
