In April 2022, the ISSB established a Jurisdictional Working Group to establish dialogue for enhanced compatibility between the ISSB’s exposure drafts and ongoing jurisdictional initiatives on sustainability disclosures. The Jurisdictional Working Group held its first meeting on 16 May 2022. The meeting summaries are now available.

The participating jurisdictions were China, Europe, Japan, United Kingdom and United States; with IOSCO being present as an observer.

During the meeting, the participants

  • Provided an update of the ongoing institutional developments in their jurisdiction in relation to ongoing global developments in sustainability-related reporting;
  • Provided an update on current plans and processes to obtain feedback from stakeholders on the current open consultations and any initial feedback that had been received;
  • Considered areas where further work can be undertaken during the consultation period to establish a global baseline for sustainability-related reporting.
