The European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG) and Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) recently announced that they will be collaborating to boost the adoption of European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS), which were passed by the European Commission this July.
We are absolutely delighted to announce a new partnership between CDP and XBRL International, which aims to accelerate digital sustainability disclosure worldwide.
During a busy week at COP27 the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) and CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) announced that CDP will incorporate the ISSB’s Climate-related Disclosures Standard (IFRS S2) into its global environmental disclosure questionnaires.
There is an increasing recognition of the importance of corporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) transparency for efficient markets and stable, resilient economies. Here at XBRL International we strongly support efforts to expand ESG disclosure, but call on policy makers and standard setters to note the vital importance of structured data to effective ESG reporting.
