ISSB Chair engages with African leaders to promote sustainability standards

Posted on April 7, 2024 by Editor

Emmanuel Faber, Chair of the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB), alongside ISSB Member Ndidi Nnoli-Edozien, recently held discussions with prominent leaders and stakeholders in Kenya, Nigeria, and South Africa. The primary focus of these meetings was to advocate for the adoption and implementation of ISSB Standards in the region.

They highlighted the benefits of providing investors with reliable, comparable, digital sustainability-related disclosures to better understand climate-related risks and opportunities.

In Kenya, discussions centred on the role of the region in implementing the ISSB standards, particularly in developing capacity building initiatives for companies preparing to adopt the standards. In Nigeria, the launch of an Adoption Roadmap solidified the country’s commitment to incorporating ISSB Standards into its regulatory framework.

In South Africa, discussions delved into the value of ISSB Standards in supporting the resilience of the economy, and supporting companies to communicate their sustainability efforts to investors.
