  • Deloitte comment letter on the proposed CSRD

    published 16 Jul 2021

    We support many of the proposals of the CSRD, including the development of EU Sustainability Reporting standards (ESRS) allowing for both international consistency and catering for EU needs and its legislative landscape. However, we note that issues at stake are global, investors and other stakeholders are often global, and many companies operate and source through global value chains. Therefore, similar to the G7 ministers of finance and central bank governors, we support a baseline global reporting standard for sustainability to be developed by the IFRS Foundation, which jurisdictions can further supplement.

  • Deloitte comment letter on the proposed amendments to the IFRS Foundation Constitution

    published 30 Jun 2021

    We commend and continue to support the IFRS Foundation Trustees for their ongoing efforts to adapt the IFRS Foundation’s institutional arrangements to support sustainability reporting standard-setting and we encourage the IFRS Foundation to amend the constitution now to anticipate the further components necessary to support sustainability reporting standard-setting, which would increase the IFRS Foundation’s flexibility to respond. We agree with many of the IFRS Foundation’s proposals, but we have some concerns about specific matters.
