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.

Webinar: materiality and the TCFD

CDSB will host this webinar to explore the issue of materiality in climate-related disclosures, following from the release of a new discussion paper

From the outset of its work, the TCFD has recognised materiality as being essential for incorporation into its work. However, materiality has remained a contentious theme from the inception of the TCFD right through to the publication of the final recommendations.

Following the release of a new CDSB paper - "Materiality and climate-related financial disclosures" - we will discuss the application of materiality to climate-related financial disclosures, looking at the current definitions and applications in existing regulation and initiatives, with some suggestions for potential strategies to effectively determine material information. The webinar will feature a discussion among the speakers about the challenges and potential strategies highlighted in the paper, followed by a Q&A.
