IFAC's Vision for High-Quality Sustainability Assurance
Business OpportunitiesDecember 23, 2021
The International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) have launched their vision for high-quality sustainability assurance and resources to support organisations in achieving this.
Sustainability-related disclosure is finally taking its rightful place within the corporate reporting ecosystem, through global and jurisdiction-specific initiatives. In order to be trusted, sustainability disclosure must be subject to high-quality, independent, external assurance.
IFAC's vision addresses the importance of global standards, regulation that supports decision-useful disclosure, and the value of an interconnected approach to sustainability and financial information reporting and assurance.
