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.

On 21 April 2021 the European Commission adopted measures to help improve the flow of money towards sustainable activities across the European Union. The Commission adopted a proposal for a Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), which would amend the existing reporting requirements of the Non-Financial Reporting Directive.

Following a deep dive into specific environmental topics, including Biodiversity and Land use, Water, and Climate, CDSB will reveal its findings. We will discuss the recent updates to EU policy, examine what this means for corporates looking to improve sustainability reporting, and ultimately whether the new CSRD addresses the issues.


  • Fiona Quinlan - Senior Manager, TCFD Technical Capacity Building, CDSB
  • Axelle Blanchard - Policy Manager, CDSB
  • Yen-pei Chen - Corporate Reporting and Tax Subject Matter Expert, ACCA

Moderated by: Patrick Hanrahan - Communications Manager, CDSB


  • Update on CDSB findings in biodiversity and land use, water, and climate
