On August 5, 2022, the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) issued a press release advising that it has received more than 1,300 comment letters on its two proposed sustainability disclosure standards.

The ISSB has received more than 600 responses to its draft Climate disclosure standard and close to 700 responses to its draft General Requirements disclosure standard. During the 120-day comment period, ISSB representatives participated in more than 400 outreach events, engaging with thousands of stakeholders globally.

A preliminary review of the comment letters confirms feedback originating from jurisdictions spanning six continents. Comments came from a range of stakeholder groups including academics; accountancy bodies and audit firms; investors; preparers; public interest bodies; regulators; and standard-setters.

In accordance with IFRS Foundation's due process, the ISSB will now assess and discuss the comments in its Board meetings. All responses to the consultations are available on the comment letter pages of the projects.
