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.

The CDSB Secretariat welcomes Dr Jarlath Molloy to its team. Jarlath will be responsible for managing the expansion of the CDSB Reporting Framework to cover forests and water, including leading the research, development of the Framework and public consultation of the new Framework.
